Apoestasies I.

Who does not relish in being a craft heretic? No one
I'd like to know too well. Confessions of heresy.
Apoestasy:

I find the notion of an "abstraction" too vague... to
abstract. It would seem that many writers or would-be
web critics have never looked at the bathroom wall
paint and clearly saw the shape of a whaleshark in the
chips. Then, they never credited said whaleshark with
dreams, a family, a goal. Beyond this, what of the
subatomic world?

Not only does the flower in the vase have its own
personality, so does the vase. And beyond that, the
parts that make up the vase and their smaller parts,
&c. Seems rather obvious to this observer, anyway.
