Calvin, when critics look upon your snowmen years from now…
Moe’s pals sure are everywhere.
What genius, Calvin?
A popular quote is “Haters are my motivators.” Hopefully that’s the case for Calvin
And Calvin is a “genius”, in his own mind that is.
Pretty prosaic for a Calvin snowman.
Genius is rarely understood in any time.
Self praise is no praise is another apt saying……Just saying..
Cut your ear Calvin. Celebrity guaranteed.
What they should marvel at is that you know and understand the meanings of “evanescence”! Not to mention existential concepts!!
Artistic genius is a matter of opinion, anyway.
Everyone’s a critic…
Calvin’s snow sculptures are one of my favorite things about winter… plus, I don’t have to shovel!
A budding Andy Goldsworthy.
I’ve always wondered…..how does this kid know those big words let alone what they mean when he doesn’t pay attention in school?
in philly we’ve had a really mild winter. only 1 day when it snowed enough to need a shovel. since then it’s rained a lot and we’ve had cold days but never together.
For his birthday I will get Calvin a copy of Tom Wolfe’s “Painted Word”
Calvin’s parents must have him enrolled in a Classical School….“Classical education depends on a three-part process of training the mind. The early years of school are spent in absorbing facts, systematically laying the foundations for advanced study.”
Art is hard to recognize sometimes.
Birth of the snow goons.
Those darned Philistines!
Mortality is a horror. Try not to dwell on it.
I prefer sandcastles for my statement of the brevity of life and art. A wave is so much more dramatic.
Mozart understands, Calvin.
I’d be worried if I heard a 6/7 year old talk that way!!
I’ve about given up on seeing snow this year.
And yet,he just did!
Obviously it is NOT too warm to build a snowman. Since he did build a snowman.
Happy Birthday, Nicolaus Copernicus!
Heliocentrism, (sun-centered solar system).
The Quantity theory of money, (The more money in circulation, the more expensive goods will be).
Gresham’s law, (In economics, Gresham’s law is a monetary principle stating that “bad money drives out good”. For example, if there are two forms of commodity money in circulation, which are accepted by law as having similar face value, the more valuable commodity will gradually disappear from circulation.).
Unrecognized in his time.
“Genius is never understood in its own time.”
Especially the stable ones.
The vocabulary blitz of Calvin is enviable. Thanks Bill!
