it's always interesting to see the range of responses to different deviations. how several people can always find something different in the same image is such an amazing thing. some of my submissions that i consider relatively unassuming can garner the most overwhelming responses, while others that might hold high personal value for me can go almost unobserved. i suppose there's a lesson there somewhere; something like "the first shall be last, and the last shall be first." like how the most remarkable object in all history - the sovereign creator of the universe in human form - was to be found in a dirty barn on the outskirts of an unimportant town.
God has always taken pleasure in making the smallest, the weakest and and most unlikely the instruments of accomplishment. and when you think about it, what better proof of divine power than to take the unusable and accomplish the impossible?
