He that is good with a hammer tends to think everything is a nail.


Art is at once incredibly complex and fundamentally simple.

Art is balancing crayons delicately atop each other as you plan your next masterwork.

Art is discovering that the delicately balanced crayons is art while your meticulously planned masterwork is tomorrows bin liner.

And look at those artistic hands.
Long and slender nails like that are a sign of a romantic character whereas short and broad nails belong to the critical person. Really, I heard this in a lecture decades ago, and it seems to work every time.

Kris, to answer your question, the old Biblical Zoo had mostly animals mentioned in the Bible. Then the zoo moved to a much bigger place and now has all kinds of animals. Its official name is the Tisch Family Zoological Garden but folks still call it the Biblical Zoo.
The different enclosures have signs with Biblical quotations about that animal.

We need a biblical zoo down here. I generally think of donkeys and camels when I think of the bible, but I suspect that this is down to years of Christmas cards...
