Intimacy and Grandeur of Soul

One way to approach this topic is through scale.  Not scale in the sense of automation, but instead in relationship to human experience.  The poet Charles Olson made much of the “eye view” which he found in the maritime/landscape painter Fitz Hugh Lane.  In Lane’s work, Olson found images that capture visual experience in a manner that corresponded to his experience.  The scale rang true…

This sense of correspondence brings us to the vistas that all the arts create through analogical relationships.  Human experience gets mirrored in a myriad of ways.  Sometimes like a gentle caress; other times like a violent thunderstorm.

It strikes me that blogs too, can express these dynamics (though few seem interested in stretching the capability within the form).
