About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    The makers of the world we have now passed through these doors in the days past, and we all answer to the same rule of time.

    I always agree with you on things I think, but together you and I would be suicidal given the world today.

    Our present days have been good to us, and, at my age, they will end soon enough. I often look back at primitive life, scratching just to survive. Deprivation often involved loss of food for days, diseases such as plague, not matters such as lacking goods as valuable as those owned by our neighbors. I say that because I saw those characteristics, and people with abundance went deeply in debt to keep up with others. English history is rife with nobility in such condition.
    This may be relative to the study “Lonely Crowd” referenced earlier, people inner directed and other directed. The fortunate are the inner directed, those with appreciation for things of value, material or not. And they are not blindly follow the crowd people. The evil in history is largely caused by those greedy for everything in the world because their bodies that, rather than containing, to be corny, spiritual richness, are complete, perfect spiritual vacuums.
    King David is a good example of one with a solid foundation, he endured attacks from all around, even from a son whom he loved trying to kill him. Then another son, Solomon, obtained wealth but lost the good heart he once had.

    Ok, now to get literary and all that book stuff. Ever read S. J. Perelman? Very funny, I have gotten many laughs from him, he is from a long time ago, if you want me to tell you about him, I gladly will. He wrote for “The New Yorker”, other magazines, and scripts for screen and stage. Much of his humor was irony, which I like. The problem is, it takes the understanding of that game by all in it to work. SJP’s works in that atmosphere were excellent, but he quit for a while, moved to England for a short while, I think, because as outrageous as he tried to get, society’s folly sped past him, so no, matter what he presented, many were unable to perceive it as humor, and, instead, took it as reality. To me, he is still good. He wrote for Marx brothers movies, and he wrote for the movie “Around the World in Eighty Days.” I have had many situations that were so whacky, I just had to laugh.

    Well, I guess I should read SJP. I haven’t tended to read comedic writers although I do like watching Wodehouse’s series (all of them). I should know what you are talking about w Solomon losing his good heart. My daughter knows more than I do at this point and has to study Talmud in school.

    This may sound crazy but sometimes I wish I were older so that I wouldn’t have to live through more of this demise.

  7. Believe it or not I also have a thing for clocks, I would like to believe that time is subjective but the hands tick away
