Separate the wheat from the tares

Frizztext: finding a field with wheat, maybe actually watching a thunderstorm soon coming, I’m always impressed deeply. In mythology the wind, blowing over a wheat-field, is a metaphor for God (read C.G. Jung). A wheat-field can have the giant majesty of an ocean! For sure Vincent van Gogh was impressed deeply: his last painting was “Wheat_Field_with_Crows_(1890)”. The Dutch photographer Ben Visbeek made a tribute with his camera, titled “Wheat Field with Crows” 2008! Meditating on his photo every time music comes in my mind: “God’s Gonna Separate The Wheat From The Tares” – an old gospel once performed by Blind Joe Taggart (and Mahalia Jackson: 1937).

  9. stunning. in fall the fields around my home look this way, and in summer, because I love the ocean so much and miss it here in the mountains, when the wind blows I see in the fields a blustery sea. A feast, Frizz.

  13. One of the crops we raised (on the farm where I grew up) was wheat. Wheat fields were a common sight. The fields can be beautiful before harvest…yet I mostly remember harvest time..and the difficulty I had with the clouds of thrashed wheat dust constant filling the air…
