|"And the LORD said unto Moses, Make you a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looks upon it, shall live." ~ Numbers 21:8|
Am I alone in being struck about dumb by this image?
This morning I simply had to watch Stephen Colbert's interview with Maurice Sendak and mourn the loss of a man whose strangely shamanic vision shaped so much of my childhood. But I was plunged into an even deeper mystery.
I think the only way this could have been more blatant is if Tracy Morgan were eating apples instead of Wheat Thins. But seeing as this is a Wheat Thins commercial, I guess it makes sense. So is the message here that eating Wheat Thins is the pathway to gnosis?
|"And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up" ~ John 3:14|
Stranger still is all the serpent food running around in little protective spheres, otherwise known as gerbil balls. How high am I?! (Not the first time I've asked myself that when watching Tracy Morgan do... just about anything.)
And in a really provocative synchronicity, now comes the tags under the video. The print is small but if you click on the image you can see the expanded view. In the second part of the Maurice Sendak interview, Colbert introduces his new children's story I Am A Pole (And So Can You).
I've gone down the rabbit hole this morning and found myself in the night kitchen, where the wild things are... or something.
