Library Fictions: take one


I'm thinking I might try working out my show notes here for my upcoming art display at the library. Here is a first attempt.

Library Fictions

The tiny stories that take place in these pictures never happened.

This might be obvious when one of them shows a character from a Dr. Seuss book haughtily wandering through this library, or a dinosaur crashing down our staircase. But it may be less obvious when it realistically looks like a lion wandered into our teen room for an afternoon nap.

But fiction is a funny thing.

How about some definitions?

Fiction is when things are made up to seem real.

Reality is what we think we're seeing.

Six of one, half a dozen of the other.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
