Van Gogh

Sometimes I blog while there is a TV on in the same room. Reality becomes multi-layered:

the room
the computer screen
the TV screen
a mirror (Alice's "Looking Glass House")
through the window
the page of a book
interruptions for meals

This evening, while I was posting about time travel, there was a TV program about art history detective work as to why van Gogh severed his ear. Would anyone in the future of the Time Patrol timeline be interested in this? Maybe not but, if so, then they would be able to research it by visiting the period but would have to avoid:

drawing attention to themselves;
causing any of the events that they were there to observe.

We know the sorts of things that can happen but the most interesting question is: would they be able to solve the mystery? On the question of comparisons with British TV programs, I have already mentioned "Time Team."

Kaor, Paul!

And you have affected me in some what similar ways! Most recently when I looked up STAR OF THE SEA II,17 and then Ecclesiastes 3.1-8.
