Nothing to see here


Just the same old boring living room on a summer day: contrasting colors, warm and cool, fighting for light. 

I'm mostly at Instagram these days as is everyone else who used to post on blogger. So, in effect, there is nothing to see here—large masses of photos at IG taking the place of words, writ, thought, and extended expression—the eye taking precedence over the ear. 

You knew, did you not, that the ear is involved in reading? 

Yep. It's true. 

It takes more time to listen than it does to look. That being the case, one might say that people aren't listening very much nowadays. I thought of this especially a few days ago, when criticism of Mr. Mueller was largely about his "show factor" rather than the facts of the case. 

Don't let your eyes fool you.
