Frozen Dreams

Liana drives ”the hour of soft light…” blog. It’s interesting and poetic with nice, sometimes wonderful, photography. I follow it with pleasure.

On the 23rd of January, to a picture of a burning sheet of music, she defined her cleverly coined word crucifiction as: ”The false belief that something true and beautiful can ever be destroyed.”

Such a great word used to dress such sweet and sticky nonsense. Many things true and beautiful are destroyed all the time. Ask the parents of the children slaughtered in Sandy Hook or those being destroyed practically daily by drone launched missiles. Are those children not true and beautiful?

By turning a blind eye to the destruction of truly beautiful things as well the desecration of beautiful truths, we deny our responsibility to protect these things. Truth and beauty will prevail… if we prevail. We won’t without a struggle.

 

 

“There’s beauty in the formation of ice.
And comedy in its cold and hard belief in its survival.”
