“‘His central theme is the Great Happiness, the paradise we come from, for which we always yearn in our innermost being, and which is restored to us through the creative imagination. To an extent rare in modern art his works lighten the spirit with qualities of joy and consolation, while opening up to us, through landscapes and archetypal figures new depths in our own natures. Among the archetypal figures he portrays are the Eternal Bride, the Angel, and the figure for which he is most famous, the Fool, which for him symbolizes purity of consciousness.’”

Scene in Paradise by CECIL COLLINS - Peter Nahum At The Leicester Galleries

The secret desire of our heart is for the lost Paradise.

It is the motive impulse behind our searching in things and experiences on every level, in friendship, in beauty, in art, even in the smallest lust, even in the smallest love. It is the lost Paradise that we are seeking.

What is this Paradise? This time of innocence and perfect virtue at the onset of creation has been captured in world mythology since the beginning of creation: from the Golden Age of Chronos described by Hesiod; to the first age of the Egyptians; to the time known as the Krita Yuga described in the Mahabharata; to the many paradise myths of the Indian tribes of the Americas to that most familiar in the West, the story of Eden. We remember and mourn for that Paradise because that is where as individual souls we come from. It is the land of angelic perfection and wisdom, and the memory of that land is the prime subject of the composer, the poet and the artist. (1)

But Collins was not mourning for a lost Paradise as such. He believed that the first fall of man was necessary; that man had to lose that Paradise in order to win experience and wisdom. The memory of Paradise together with the hope of regaining it provided him with his chief stimulus for creativity. Collins believed that the second Paradise, the Great Happiness, would be greater than the first because it would be known with the fullness of experience. His Scene of Paradise encapsulates those beliefs.

Do big cities exert more power than less populous ones in American state legislatures? In many m m political systems, greater representation leads to more policy gains, yet for most of the nation's history, urban advocates have argued that big cities face systematic discrimination in statehouses. Drawing on a new historical dataset spanning 120 years and 13 states, we find clear evidence that there is strength in numbers for big-city delegations in state legislatures. District bills affecting large metropolises fail at much higher rates than bills affecting small cities, counties, and villages. Big cities lose so often because size leads to damaging divisions. We demonstrate that the cities with the largest delegations—are more likely to be internally divided—are the most frustrated in the legislative process. Demographic differences also matter, with district bills for cities that have many foreign-born residents, compared the state as a whole, failing at especially high rates. -- Downloaded via iphone
