  2. Title: J. D. Sedding’s Aphorism

    Haiku Opinion:

    • Confusion: Something is missing
    • Question: What is the context for this
    • Conclusion: Think I disagree

    Here’s what I found out:

    • Mackintosh adopted, as his personal motto, J. D. Sedding’s aphorism (noted English architect – died 1891): ‘There is hope in honest error, none in the icy perfection of the mere stylist’.

    Aphorism Language: a bit vague, haughty, condescending, and disdainful; not unusual for the upper class of the day.

    • “Hope” is groundless without clarity and action
    • “Honest error: as opposed to “dishonest error?”
    • “Icy perfection” is honored in figure skating😉
    • “Mere stylist” as opposed to “master stylist?” (& as opposed to a meerkat😉)

    Life:
    • Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1893: Changed his given name “McIntosh” to “Mackintosh”)
    • Scottish
    • Architect: (Honeyman & Keppie)
    • 1899: Engaged to Keppie’s daughter, Jessie.
    • 1900: Married fellow artist & designer, Margaret McDonald instead – no kids
    • 1904: Partner, Honeyman & Keppie
    • 1913: Went out on his own
    • 1914: Moved to Suffolk
    • 1915: Arrested as a German spy
    • 1923: Moved to Southern France, Mediterranean to do only watercolor paintings
    • 1927: Returned to London due to throat and tongue cancer
    • 1928: Died

    If I were writing this aphorism:

      • This fellow certainly had a colorful life. Thank you for all the interesting information.
        You have a fully packed haiku. I will answer it, not a haiku though.
        – I understood the meaning of it in my own way
        – the context, I imagined it was given from a teacher’s point of view to his students
        – the conclusion is that it did lead me to write what I did
        Down the line, we probably will never know the intended meaning or context, but we can agree to disagree.

        Thanks for joining in. I appreciate your honesty in this post
        Now I will go read at the link you posted.
