[Heade's Calm Is Unsteady, Storm-stirred; We Respond In Our Era To Its Hint Of The Nervous And The Fearful. His Weather Is Interior Weather, In A Sense, And He Perhaps Was, If Far From The First To Portray A Modern Mood, An Ambivalent Mood Tinged With Dread And Yet Imbued With A Certain Lightness.The Mood Could Even Be Said To Be Religious: Not An Aggressive Preachment Of God's Grandeur But A Kind Of Zen Poise And Acceptance, Represented By The Small Sedentary Or Plodding Foreground Figures That Appear Uncannily At Peace As The Clouds Blacken And The Lightning Flashes.]

Quotes About Yin And Yang

"Metal is from the earth, he thought as he scrutinized. From below: from that realm which is the lowest, the most dense. Land of trolls and caves, dank, always dark. Yin world, in its most melancholy aspect. World of corpses, decay and collapse. Of feces. All that has died, slipping and disintegrating back down layer by layer. The daemonic world of the immutable; the time-that-was.And yet, in the sunlight, the silver triangle glittered. It reflected light. Fire, Mr. Tagomi thought. Not dank or dark object at all. Not heavy, weary, but pulsing with life. The high realm, aspect of yang: empyrean, ethereal. As befits work of art. Yes, that is artists job: takes mineral rock from dark silent earth transforms it into shining light-reflecting form from sky.Has brought the dead to life. Corpse turned to fiery display; the past had yielded to the future." - Author: Philip K. Dick
