Iconography

There was a time when icons really meant religious pictures.  Pictures of God.  Now icons are pictures of everything.  I think they are still a little spiritual though.  We have to find the essence of something.  An icon shows only what that thing is.  What that thing is that nothing else in the world is.
The result is something very, very simple.  Something anybody and everybody in the world can understand.  A universal language.  Wow.

Let’s think about that.  No, thinking is too complicated.  Let’s do something about that.
