"End of the World", not "Beyond" [In reply to] Can't Post


In Reply To

Beyond is intriguing. The title may indicate a passage to another world or plane of existence. The jaunty posture makes me think of 'another adventure' and reminds me of his line "If you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you'll be swept off to". C.S. Lewis' work immediately comes to mind as does Indiana Jones - Temple of doom's leap of faith. Can anyone make out the writing on the side of the cliff? Looks like "and a --- world" to me.



I think you mean the picture "End of the World", which has the stick-figure man walking off the cliff? It is labelled "End of the World" (at least I think that's what it says) on the right hand side of the drawing, written up the mountain, so to speak.

But your post made me go back and look at the "Eerieness" painting, and for the first time I noticed that there is a distinct heart-shape at the end of the "tunnel" of trees, toward which the wizard is heading. It is very purposely drawn, it seems to me. Wonder why?

Everybody's wondering what and where they all came from.
Everybody's worried 'bout where they're gonna go when the whole thing's done.
No one knows for certain, and so it's all the same to me:
I think I'll just let the mystery be.
