An "About Mordecai":
"Who am I, what am I, where am I, when am I?"
"Hi, I’m Mordecai. Well, I was, I mean I am , but I’m not any longer; well, no longer here that is, but there, if you see what I mean. I guess I’m not making much sense yet, but it’s hard after all these centuries to get the old brain working again. Sigh, I guess I should start again. I’m Mordecai, and you can read about me in the book of Esther. I’m circa 360BC, a Jew with an astute mind, a keen observer of the devious workings of my society, and a subversive! But as one wise man said, there’s nothing new under the sun. From what I see today it’s just the same. I mean, well, we never had the internet and airplanes. But we did have pornography, drugs, bribery and corruption, and murder – we even had beauty parlors and the beginnings of a feminist movement! So, I guess there really is nothing new under the sun."
What's with this place?
This web site has an identity crisis, not quite sure what it is, where its from, or where its going. But for what its worth, here is some possibly use(ful/less) background
Q: Do you think there's any value in what you're doing?
Do you mean value for others? I have no idea, and am not particularly bothered whether it does or not. Why do you whistle? Why laugh? What paint a picture or tell a story? Why hug? It's all about expression, and expression gives reality to what otherwise simply remains a figment of our imagination.
Q: What are all those old essays?
There was a year where we put together a weekly essay for each Sunday morning at church. They relate to the events of the week, and so in some cases you might miss the context. About 80% were created by one person, with contributors for the rest.
Q: And the blog?
After a year or so of the essays being discontinued, some of us were discontent ... and so we started writing again!
Q: Where do the pictures in the blog and essays come from?
These are 90% our own images and/or drawings. A few were taken from a free stock website, www.sxc.hu. In general we are very visually driven, and the pictures always carry multiple messages for us that relate to the topic at hand. Your own mileage may vary!
Q: The pictures on the images page are a bit mundane! Why?
Why not? :) They're merely a collection of pictures that evoked, at least in us, some interesting thoughts.
