The Edwardian Age In Vibrant Color:

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Did soldiers really wear such bright colors in the field in such recent times?

I wonder if Mr. Oakes is the photographer?  Wink
Logged old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.

Picture is from 1910, so revolvers where available. I don't see any weapons in this picture.

In the early days, there was no need for camouflage, because the weapons could only fire one round at the time. It was more a time of tactical fire and reload sequences. After the revolver, this changed drasticly.
The bright colors had the benefit of spotting who's where on the battlefield, so the commanders could see what tactical moves they had to order.

Also, red clothes where meant to hide the blood loss, to keep the moral high.

The best way to learn is by personal experience.

Cool. It's weird what a difference it makes to see them in color. I had a harder time convincing myself they were old photos. It seems there's something about color that improves my perception of texture, also.

That delicate forest flower,   
With scented breath and look so like a smile,   
Seems, as it issues from the shapeless mould,   
An emanation of the indwelling Life,   
A visible token of the upholding Love,   
That are the soul of this great universe.
