But let me back up a bit here: I am so elated, just deliriously delighted, to have found Connections! It was an honest to gosh total geek show back in the late 1970's I used to watch on PBS with my mother. Burke would start with the most ordinary object and through a series of, you got it, connections would end with how that object's contribution formed something new in technology. It wouldn't always be objects either. There would be events or human plights that would lead to some new invention. It looks like the entire Connections library can be found at YouTube! If not, then there's enough 1970's geekery to be lost in for a few days at least. And it's good listening while painting. (As is, I am finding, any of the videos with Bettany Hughes.) All of which I was able to get so much started on today's spread.
