Marine Corps art
I've added a new blog to my blogroll (via Dr. Sanity). It's called "Fire and Ice," and it's the blog of Michael Fay, the artist in residence for the US Marine Corps.
You may say, as I did, wha??? There's a Marine Corps artist in residence? Who knew? It's not an oxymoron, it's a fact; there is--and he's got a blog, and it's worth a look.
Not only that, but in one of those small coincidences that so often occur, his blog bears the name of one of Robert Frost's most famous poems, in keeping with some of the recent discussions here.
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To know that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
A look at Fay's Blogger Profile evinces a man of wide-ranging talents and interests, including the literary. And I'm glad to see that, like me, he's a fan of the movie "Groundhog Day," which, if you follow Kundera, makes him an optimist.
