I am sitting here at my laptop, trying to come up with something suitable for a Non-Sequitur Thursday post, and I thought I would look through our downloaded pictures, to see if anything sparked a thought. Nothing did, but I do like this picture of Max Schreck as Count Orlok in Nosferatu, arguably the scariest movie every made (not that I want to argue about it; I always lose arguments). I added the caption, or could you tell?
When I went to the Facebook page for Nosferatu, I immediately found another photo I liked:
I find the shadows eerie. I feel there is a profound point to be made here about no shadows without light. I think it is something I ought to keep in mind when I write fiction. I’m afraid I’m not up to profundity this evening. Let’s bear that thought in mind though, light and shadow. If anybody else would like to write a blog post about it, please comment with a link to it. I would be happy to read such a post.
This was my Facebook cover photo for a while. I include it, because I like to have three pictures. Three is a good number, and not just because of three wishes and third time’s the charm. It has other connotations, like Hobbes, Locke and Rousseau. That, too, is a good subject for a future blog post. Happy Thursday, everyone.
