Midweek Musings: Connecting the Dots

Connect-the-dots: anyone else remember that brain-game? If you saw them as a kid, you would recall that they were pretty simple. The picture was essentially already laid out for you; all you had to do was connect the dots to complete it. The simple ones only required you to complete the outline of the picture, but the more complex ones had little to none of what the picture itself is – you would have to connect the dots in a convoluted, complex manner to see the whole picture.

That’s how it is in history, politics, and other man-made, social “norms.” One can look at the current political climate here in the States and, by connecting the dots, seeing the big picture and how our politics are mirroring, and being mirrored by, other political events in other countries.

I recently connected the dots when it came to my circle of online acquaintances and saw a magnificent, beautiful masterpiece…it is a sheer work of art and poetry! I love the way the pattern was laid out; the clever design is amazing. I see the delicious simplicity of it all when I look at the full picture, and it makes me grin from ear to ear. People who make me laugh are always appreciated! I should give them due credit in some future posts, eh?
