Story one

Blood Moon

Brother Ron got up at 0430 this morning hoping to catch a glimpse of natural phenomena called the blood moon.


A blood moon or lunar eclipse is when the moon passes directly behind the earth into its shadow.  This can occur only when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are aligned exactly, or very closely so, with the Earth in the middle, where, a lunar eclipse can only occur the night of a full moon.


To my disappointment, I was only able to see the ending stage of the eclipse at that time due to a miss communication. I relied on the information I received from the internet. What I did not take into account, was the difference in the time zones.

It was my fault, because I should have done better research for such an irregular and important event.
It is hard not to believe there is something out there greater than myself when mysteries such as blood moons happen right before my eyes.

Scientists and philosophers try to explain these so called, “Natural Phenomena’s” and are able to predict them with great accuracy. I can’t help but wonder what came first the chicken or the egg? In other words, were the bible stories created around the natural phenomena or does the natural phenomena help me remember the stories?

People try to instill fear in others by suggesting that some ancient prophecy has, or is being fulfilled by some natural reoccurring phenomena called a Blood Moon.
However ridiculous or untrue the suggestion may be, I still do not want to discount the fact that it might be true.

Does the Blood Moon have a meaning or hidden agenda in prophecy? Brother Ron does not know and will not speculate or react to naturally occurring events.

Is the Blood Moon a so-called, “Act of God”? Brother Ron believes it was.

For example, if the blood moon caused a high tide that resulted in a disaster where people were injured or human suffering was involved, the Blood Moon might have been referred to an “Act of God” for insurance purposes. However, as far as I know thank G-d no one was injured by it, so it was called a natural repeating phenomenon, that a few lunatics (No pun intended) have attached a doomsday prophecy to which may or may not be true.

Story two

Seeing is Believing

Brown pigments

Brown pigments are from minerals of the earth, but very few modern pigments with these names actually contain natural earths; most of their ingredients today are synthetic. Mars brown is typical of these new colors, made with synthetic iron oxide pigments.

The new colors have a superior coloring power and opacity.

Walnuts have been used to make a brown dye since antiquity. The Roman writer Ovid, in the first century BC described how the Gauls used the juice of the hull or husk inside the shell of the walnut to make a brown dye for wool, or a reddish dye for their hair.

The Chestnut tree has also been used since ancient times as a source brown dye. The bark of the tree, the leaves and the husk of the nuts have all been used to make dye. The leaves were used to make a beige or yellowish brown dye, and in the Ottoman Empire the yellow-brown from chestnut leaves was combined with indigo blue to make shades of green.

Brown is the color of wood or soil. It is a combination of the colors red, black and yellow. Brown is seen widely in nature, in wood, soil, and human hair color, eye color and skin pigmentation. In the United States, it is the color most often associated with plainness, humility, the rustic, and poverty. It is also, according to public opinion surveys, the least favorite color.


Brown has many shades and tones – each producing a different effect. Brown can be a stabilizing color. The red in brown gives it practical energy while the yellow and blue add mental focus energies. Too much brown can make a dull effect. Brown gives a feeling of solidity, and allows one to stay in the background, unnoticed.

Some shades of brown create a warm, comfortable feeling of wholesomeness, naturalness and dependability.

As I am trying to show, when an artist puts paint down on a canvas, there is more than meets the eye. Much thought goes into the color selection and application of those colors.
