Fake Quijote

I can’t remember how this even came about. Russian flag? Bannon? Trump?  All I know is that I owe Cervantes an apology; maybe for the second time because of this 11/28/13 post as well.

Tilting at Insectoturbines

We’re staying with relatives in Chicago, and last night, when I woke up in a strange bed in the wee hours but without a stylus handy, I whipped out my finger and rendered this one. I’m a huge Don Quijote fan. I’ve read it in Spanish with professorial guidance at three different universities. One professor admitted that he viewed his own life in two simple stages, before reading Don Quijote and after. I agree; and I’d add that it’s true each time I reread it.

At any rate, one of Cervantes many universal themes hinges on the relationship between the ways in which things seem to be and the way they actually are…and everything in between.
