Pardon this intrusion into your Eratosphere reading, writing, commentaries, and, ahem, all the other delights the Sphere is able to offer. But to keep it simple indeed, Eratosphere needs your help/sponsorship!
Ordinarily--and actually never before until now--I wouldn't post this personal notice to members outside the threads confines simply because there was more or less some measure of the much-needed assistance from usually a couple of handfuls--out of the hundreds active of the thousands registered--of very helpful members. But it seems things have fairly dried up--or rather, only a dribble remains--in terms of such help, even with the seasonal reminders where we bump the sponsorship threads, with as much restraint as possible, a couple of times or so throughout the year. I could go further, but I'd rather simply point you to the relevant assistance threads to read more or to interact with:
These are wonderful.
To a degree, murals such as these are the modern day equivalent to the frescos of the renaissance, I think. For every Michelangelo there must have been thousands of artists toiling away in obscure places painting ceilings walls, floors -- wherever there was wide open blank space.
There are some nice murals here in Boston that I'll try to photograph and put here. Thanks for the thread!
