An Excerpt from Jim

People might have snickered at Grandma Moses' childlike, untutored technique but Grandma's works touched them in ways other artists' didn't.
I aspire to be the Grandma Moses of Natural Philosophy.
What I mean is that even if I don't have the brains, talent and instruction to philosophize publicly, I'm doing it anyway, for the same reasons Grandma Moses painted: I just feel like doing it, and I believe that what I'm saying ought to be said.
Here's one thing I want to say:
Reality is a blossoming,
and we're all inside it,
both as observers and participants.
