Happy belated Cranach day!

Saturday, October 16, was the day the patron of this blog, Lucas Cranach, the artist of the Reformation, died in 1553, at the age of 81.  (His formal day of commemoration is April 6, set aside to honor him along with other Reformation-era artists, Albrecht Durer and Michelangelo.)  Read about him and contemplate his self-portrait in the sidebar to the right.  He embodies what we keep talking about when it comes to vocation. How should his day be celebrated?

    I think it should be celebrated by doing something you love to do but usually don’t make the time for. Like fishing, painting (duh), creative writing, baking, craft woodwork, or some other very basic and elemental task.

    Or for adults doing one of those things with your niece or nephew, children, or great-grandchildren.
