There’s a Winslow Homer Painting of a small ship with Gloucester on the side, and That’s the name of the boat, Not its heading – although in this case, It was both; and, It’s Gloucester, Mass., Not Gloucester, England. Of course, Homer was a famous artist, Who shares a name with a famous author, Who painted words Instead of portraits – but, similarly, Depicted humanity and war and our Struggle with good and evil. And, don’t forget, “the Devil’s in the details.” For instance, did you notice the Masterful artistic line Winslow used in each of the Sailing lines on the Gloucester? (A rope on a boat is a “line,” You know – not a “rope.”) We could carry on and on about lines – like, bread lines make it hard to learn sailing and art – But no one likes a literary trope.
