Precious

James e-mailed me this lovely image from painter Casey Weldon today. As anyone who's seen St. Nick might guess, it struck quite a familiar chord:

Inspiration, I think, is sort of unstuck in time. It moves backwards as much as it does forwards. I look at a painting like that and feel fortified in the choices and decisions I've already made - it's evidence that other people are paying visits to the same corners of our collective subconscious that I must frequent.
