Why mosaicsynapse?

Good question.

(Alert: one of my journalism professors in college used to say, "If someone begins their answer with 'Good question,' you can bet the question is better than their answer's going to be." And so it is. Fair warning.)

What if I said something like, "I named the blog mosaicsynapse as an attempt to juxtapose two seemingly disparate ideas... art and skill, old and new, biblical and scientific... demonstrating the possibility of a genuine communiqué between the two..." Wow, I think I just put myself to sleep.

It was all that. But I just liked the way it sounded.
