Arty Farty Good Friday

"2,000 years ago one man got nailed to a tree for saying how great it would be if everyone was nice to each other for a change."
(Douglas Adams)

Dali's painting, below, was inspired by an old drawing by St John of the Cross, a 16th century priest; he along with St. Teresa of Avila, founded the Carmelites. Dali painted his own version following a series of dreams.

Kaleymorris ~ Yes - he used to say and write things in a wonderful way nobody else ever has done - or probably will ever, do.
