Thanks for the looking out Steve. I had already found those links you listed, which is my original problem... they all refer to, or quote from, the original text. I would like a copy of the actual original text from the book itself and that is what I am having a hard time finding.

My local library is on the Bibliomation system that links all library catalogs subscribed to the system. Currently sixty public libraries and nineteen schools in the state and I was able to find only one library that has it on their shelf. It's about an hour drive from me and I might just have to take that drive just to make some photocopies.

Oh, and yes, I will publish my write up here as well, as always. :thumbup:

Took the drive to the only library in the state that had the book and made some copies. Thanks to all who offered their help. Much appreciated.

No link... I'll be publishing it here also.

I have just finished reading the full text (only 14 pages) and there are two or three points he makes in the text that I think will be worthy of conversation. Once i have organized my thoughts I'll post them here. I think everyone will get something out of the conversation.

Thanks for getting the ball rolling, Minnie.

Glad to do so, I love these kinds of conversations.

I'll be posting the new Monthly Masters with a new image around July 1. But the all discussions of this sort should continue as long as they will. There is no end to what we can learn by considering the art of others.

Minnie, Thank you for this. The resources are splendid. I will benefit from them

The image chills me, partly as a result of current photos of children fleeing violence; it has echoes of the young girl on fire from napalm in Vietnam. And that raises a question of how objective we can be when looking at a photo.

Also, there is a halo of some sort around her, also suggesting an attempt to focus attention. The lighting just doesn't seem right on her; I can't be more specific that that. And there is a softness, a watercolor quality, to parts of the image that puzzles me.

And it looks like something of a stock photo from a travel brochure, if the child could be PSed out.

Just so you can give these comments the right weight, I didn't like any of John Donne's poems the first time I read them, not

knowing who he was. Then his reputation and others' comments made me read again.

Here's a photo from yesterday, not necessarily a dm, but a significant pause in the afternoon. My wife thought it was time to go home while our granddaughter wanted to stay. She pretended to pout to see whether pouting would work. It didn't ; it doesn't.

I have much reading to do. Thanks Matt
