What a change it is to decide your vocation is image rather than word!   That every day there are a jillion words crafted to move opinion and, for the most part, this is like planting your feet and pushing hard on the earth to move it. People’s opinions about God, politics, and radishes emerge mostly from their individual precognitive soup.

But, ah, look again at the Sistine Chapel. There is a statement you either rejoice in or ignore. You don’t argue.
