- Jul 18 4:03 PMThe discussion of the icon images available made it sound like they were
from some particular political perspective. In fact, the people in the
are all over the place. Some are clearly standard saints, but there's also
Einstein, John Donne, Bach, etc. It sounds more like they're saying, "Hey,
you want to consider this person a saint, that's fine with us. Just so we
make some money on it." >>
How about three cheers for the so-called free market? I am sure that some
of you can overwhelm me with reasons that it is NOT a free market! Still,
I am glad for those "icons" which do appeal to me. There are so many
available everywhere which don't! So many "Christian" or "religious" or
"spiritual" bookstores give me the heebie-jeebies with their various
attitudes. Sometimes I don't agree with the subjects that Bridge Building
has chosen to "elevate".... so then I don't buy that icon. But for the
ones I do like, I am happy to have the opportunity to buy them. In fact, I
wish I could buy them more often. They can make handy post cards and
things to put on the refrigerator and tape onto one's writing journal as
interesting jumping-off points.
Is there one of Taliesin?
We decry the idiocy on TV and all around us. But it is all supported by
dollars spent. If people didn't buy garbage it wouldn't succeed. We do it
to ourselves. Bridge Building has some nice advent calendars. I prefer
theirs to the Teddy Bears and cartoon whatnots that I see at CVS.
Hey I better be careful or I'll turn into a crank myself....
Meanwhile maybe it's time to order more of my favorite cards.. if htey are
Although I was going to take a shopping spree at Victoria's Secret sales
