This is a computer wire. It is used to connect one computer component to another. In this case, it connected a modem to the dark side of the central processing unit (CPU) – the part where the wires come and go in a seemingly haphazzard manner. When I lay it out for photodocumentation I was struck by how much-alike it looked like a work of the great master painter-sculptor-wirist-printmaker-ceramicist-etc, Pablo Picasso. Had he designed this himself, he likely would have named it
Goggly Eyes With la Sonrisa (and Mustache) #42
P. Picasso would have been able to sell this for untold numbers of dollars bill, but in my throwaway society it ends up at Goodwill being sold for a shiny nickel. Does art have anything to do with repentance? Funny you should ask.
Jeremiah 18: 1-10
At the Potter’s House
This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: “Go down to the potter’s house, and there I will give you my message.” So I went down to the potter’s house, and I saw him working at the wheel. But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him.
Then the word of the Lord came to me. He said, “Can I not do with you, Israel, as this potter does?” declares the Lord. “Like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand, Israel. If at any time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be uprooted, torn down and destroyed, and if that nation I warned repents of its evil, then I will relent and not inflict on it the disaster I had planned. And if at another time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be built up and planted, and if it does evil in my sight and does not obey me, then I will reconsider the good I had intended to do for it.
God = hope
Psalm 34:5 Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed.
