Colourful geometry


With every instance of affection a world connives,
Every kind word is part of destiny's business.
The universe cheers when the word of one person is met keenly,
knowingly, lovingly by another.
Love is the mightiest point in a sweet and cunning world's going
after harmony;
Love is the color of the deftest and richest world geometry,
Geometry moving, and making a point a world, and a world a point.


Eli Siegel, "A marriage".

Why is it that no matter what happens I end up being the crazy guy? :-)

Drawing day was (or is, depending on the zone?) the world drawing event:

I love the way you bring art and literature together. The two things have always seemed very intrinsically tied together. In this particular poem, it is incredibly touching the way that Siegel describes how a word can be felt keenly by two people who both know and feel what is meant. You bring that up a level by tying words to art then art to machines, thereby making this kind of all encompassing idea of love and art and words.

Or maybe I'm the crazy girl and I don't really know what I'm talking about~~ :)

Mh, you know very well what you're talking about, and, as long as tying literature to art and art to machines (and machine learning) is the desireable result, I can't always achieve it.
Thanks for your deep vision and your visit, of course.
