The Pagan's Eye Returns

I've decided to resurrect my photo blog The Pagan's Eye.  For some months, I'd been posting my own photographs here at The Pagan Sphinx, along with the art posts and other features. In reviewing the intent of my blogs, I've concluded that I want to reserve this blog for art and the occasional musical, spiritual or justice-oriented post.

Please do go over and visit The Pagan's Eye once in a while. I'm a complete amateur but I live in a beautiful area and I enjoy travel. It would be wonderful to share those experiences with you through my photography.

Could a greater miracle ever take place than for us to look through each other's eyes even for an instant?
Henry David Thoreau


Love, Peace and all Groovy Things,

Surealistic Sunday

In the 1930s Surrealism spread like wildfire across Europe, led by Dalí, Magritte and Miró. Danish Surrealists from Wilhelm Freddie and Richard Mortensen to Heerup and Jorn were influenced by the international wave. More at Art Knowledge News.

Emily Dickinson - The Belle of Amherst
"When the Amherst sphinx styled herself a pagan, she meant she didn’t believe in the biblical God. What sort of deity, if any, she did believe in is hard to pinpoint."
