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).
