There was a time when I didn't know how vanishing points and horizon lines would enable me to make a scene, or a house, or even a box look realistic.  I wonder which art teacher gave me this gift, and how old I was.  Perspective was part of my life at least by 6th grade, when  I do remember seeing the Raphael painting of The School of Athens, with all kinds of lines showing how perspective was easily defined scientifically.  Art and science are definitely in bed together, snuggled up tight and loving lots of it, even if not every minute of it.

if you haven't seen this yet, prepare yourself for a nice surprise.  I watched it twice in a row.  It is worth the minutes to experience so many light years of our universe.

It sure puts things in perspective!

Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
