Jupiter and Io, ca. 1531

Antonio Allegri da Correggio (August 1489 – March 5, 1534), usually known as Correggio, was the foremost painter of the Parma school of the Italian Renaissance, who was responsible for some of the most vigorous and sensuous works of the 16th century. In his use of dynamic composition, illusionistic perspective and dramatic foreshortening, Correggio prefigured the Rococo art of the 18th century.

Antonio Allegri da Corregio

I will turn to smoke
held to form by will alone
and I will rise up,
twining around you.

Remember the ancient snake
around the laurel
staff, the sage song and
stream of your inner story,
that was me, you know.

  1. Yes, I know. And cool thoughts Christopher, because smoke is one of those things that will fill every space that is allowed or made available. Smoke fills everything up and water fills everything in the down.

    The old emblem for medical related things is eerie. I am so often blown away by the level of organization everything in this world is arranged, no matter how random it may seem from it's outward appearance.

    And even from the little I know, I find myself in frequent states of disbelief in regards to how well everything seems to fit. As if it were planned, all of it, thought out and wise decisions made for each new thing that is brought into this world and given life. Every new discovery, new invention and even every dream of the most imaginative mind; has a place among this organization as if each spot that newly appears had been carefully planned out since day one.

    and it seems most evident in languages, words, emblems and other forms that represent something in the absence of it's immediate presence, so that it is as if that "something" can be everything at once, to everyone at once, and fulfill all the different roles people demand of this "something" all at the same time.


The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
