Yesterday I watched a fiction movie on TV about consequences of environmental disorder. Flooding, extreme global weatherchange, storms, frost, death etc.
Burning books was the only way to keep up a certain "heat" inside the libraryroom where lead actors stayed and waited for the hero.
One sentence in a dialogue is still repeating in my mind:
"the Dawn of the age of Reason"
referring to protecting Johannes Gutenbergs work and his first Bible.
In 1455 Gutenberg published his 42-line Bible. About 180 were printed, most on paper and some on vellum.
His books (whatever content) was the first public medium making it possible to communicate by printing and sharing content of ideas and not only through oral stories for common people. The Dawn of the power of the mind to think, understand, and form judgments by a process of logic.
Today we all communicate through electronic media with a speed not believed only years ago. Not only by texting but also through pictures. This kind of communication creates ideas like the photo following my posting today. High heal shoes.
It was when visiting Maries blog I got the idea. Her craziness of shoes, the yesterday movie, Guthenbergs Bible and a calender poster from december 1999.
Let us have a rich communicating week full of thinking, understanding and judgements, on winter holiday, home, at work, on duty or wherever you all are in this climate threatened world made by men or not.
