I love vinaigrettes. I love that there are so many different kinds, that they are never plain, and that they tend to be very robust and flavorful. But mostly I think that they are fun to watch when you mix them together, because simply sitting in a shared space, never being shaken up, they separate out. But shaking them up is a very different thing indeed.
Art lost its basic creative drive the moment it was separated from worship. It severed an umbilical cord and now lives its own sterile life, generating and degenerating itself. In former days the artist remained unknown and his work was to the glory of God.
-Ingmar Bergman (quoted by Gregory Wolfe in Image Journal)
