Sketch for the Dead

Dead people probably don’t read blogs but if they did, this one would surely top their list. So here’s to them, no wait, to you. The dead. We miss you. Some of you anyway. I am sure there are many a dead person no one would miss. But that’s neither here nor there.

  1. it looks like a little sperm is dripping from your eye. But i like the smoothness of this piece, some of your pieces almost look like paint(there is a different one with a dinosaur and flowers thats cool too…)

  2. what a sweet shout-out to the dead…and the man in the painting looks so sad, but I guess it’s fitting…but still I wish he would stop crying! :-(

  3. To fear death, my friends, is only to think ourselves wise, without being wise: for it is to think that we know what we do not know. For anything that men can tell, death may be the greatest good that can happen to them: but they fear it as if they know quite well that it was the greatest of evils. And what is this but that shameful ignorance of thinking that we know what we do not know?

    And quoted from Plato by me, (1954-c.2254 AC)

  4. Dead people won’t even tell the living (or maybe they can’t cause they don’t know) whether or not the Deists, the Agnostics, or the Atheists are wrong.

    “What if you’re wrong and we never get to find out? It’s kind of presumptuous, isn’t it, assuming that dead people know any more than we do.”

    “My, but we’re in an existential mood, today, aren’t we?”

    “It’s just something I was thinking about yesterday morning, that’s all. How terrible it would be to be dead, to be a ghost and know that you’re dead, and still not know if there’s a God” (67).

  5. 462: I guess it kind of looks a bit like sperm but I actually drew a picture of sperm here a while back. I think it was in April (check the archives).

    Romi: He’s sad Romi. That’s what sad men do.

    Pugs: Yeah, that’s looking deep here. But I surely hope there is no afterlife. If there is, what’s the point of this?

  6. Exactly…what would be the point. But too many Atheists enjoy being alive, methinks, to take themselves out of the picture.

    Oh, and self-termination is illegal in the US. If success is not had, there would be legal repercussions as well as a mandatory psych evaluation.
