Over at the Gingersnap Creations blog they have a once in a blue moon challenge. This means that you can choose any of their previous challengethemes for your creation.
I had to go with the GC69: Chestnut Theme Challenge: Ancient Ages
This gave me the opportunity to visit some old "friends", Aristoteles and Plato. I say "friends" because I was not very fond of them while studying them, but they have grown on me *lol*. Now all the tears I shedded when I did not understand is forgotten and they are both a fond memory from my time at univeristy.
This painting is made by Rafael, another "friend" of mine, so this was truly walking down memory lane for me....
I think that in this painting they are conspiering about the future. They are making plans for how to make generations of literature Ph.d students go nuts over the fact that Aristotele's book "Comedia" is missing. I think that this moment, captured by Raphael, is when they dicided to destroy the book so that they would be ensured a good laugh all through their afterlife, wherever they would spend that. I think they were pretty evil men!
So how long did that take for me to go from thinkin of them as "friends" to calling them evil..... 30 sec? Well, I think that this is a good illustration of my relationship to these two great thinkers;
I love them, but I sure hate them too *LOL*
Thank you so much for stopping by!
