Digression, or maybe not.

On the way to info about yesterday's stuff, I came across a website, Rurification. Some interesting there, some not. But I found my new favorite word. Ekphrasis! It is rhetorical description of a work of art. So I guess to whatever degree art is involved here, I'm delighted to be ekphrastic. But is the delight from the image, or this reality as I remember the moment? Does it matter? It certainly helps explain why you might get going before everyone else on an early morning in northern Michigan, getting out there to see what you can in the mist. Then shoot away, and think about it years later. Says a little about why. Now there's some ekphrastic rhetoric for you!
