The above poetry started with, “Dressed in skins | Dressed in leafs | Knitted skins | Knitted leafs” after I read about dress code issue. As I stumbled upon Ian’s remarks, my imagination starts to wander. The article can be found at Ericalagan.net/dress-code-st-anthony at ‘ianscyberspace on March 4, 2013 at 7:50 am’ mentioning, “The Bible says Adam and Eve were created naked so under the right circumstances where minds are pure that’s the ideal. But when in disobedience they realized they were in fact naked they put leaves on, and God substituted skins. Perhaps you should turn up at church in a leaf costume or skins and then he would be happy to have you go back to the traditional costumes which are both beautiful and appropriate. Its this kind of attitude your cleric espouses that turns people off religion today. It’s called majoring in minors!”

When I search the origin of cotton, the website wasn’t sure its date. The article is at here. The origin of silk is at this link

This whole process is very challenging for me to express my feelings and ideas through poetry.

Art

In olden days, painting on canvas was considered arts.
In painting and/or even photography, reality is depicted in a frame.
In olden days, art is much more profound when you enter the Catholic Church buildings.
Arts are used to visually explain of God’s redemption for the fallen mankind.
God’s love for us who are created in His image though we fall.

Philippians 4:6-9 (KJV)
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

While I was accompanying my son to watch children’s animation, I feel challenged to define ‘art’. Animation, photography, film, paintings, dance, singing, music, etc are considered art. Even animations for adults and teenagers are also arts.
