Momma was out in a field the other day, camera in hand, when a thought occurred about a point between being and nothingness, about what a person locked into today’s Kentucky lifestyle and 21st Century sensibilities recognizes in a pastoral scene where there is no object as a central focus. Where’s the sign, building, person, animal, and what’s the point of that snapshot in time? Momma wonders if you’d say there is nothing in this photograph, in which case Momma rant-engine would rev up, and with apologies to Sartre for misuse of his title, and Andy Rooney for stealing some thunder, lock into high gear. Granted, this field is planted with grain, so apologies also to farmers who see a cultivated crop.
There is a real point here. Stated straight away, it’s that “nothing”, in the form of open space, is really something important….. For the whole rant, CLICK HERE.
