[ KNOWLEDGE IS POWER ] Jefferson Building is covered in aphorisms, sayings, tile work, sculpture. It’s a temple to knowledge. My favorite aphorism so far is “there is no work of genius which has not been in the delight of man.” Lots of references to GOD but also ones like this: “there is one only good namely knowledge and one only evil namely ignorance.”
The imagery of the sacred heart, the suffering heart, the thorns, the flames, has always moved me, primally. I can blame and thank my latent Catholicism. I find it so beautiful. A perfect bittersweetness that represents life so well.
Christmastime at Fort Rosecrans. Bittersweet but undeniably beautiful to think of my grandparents Chief Joe Crawford and Jean Crawford who are interred here. So many wonderful memories of holiday times with them.
