Etchings in the Sand…

Thoughts and Photos from the Desert…


Effusively or insincerely emotional; “a bathetic novel;” “maudlin expressions of sympathy;” “mushy effusiveness;” “a schmaltzy song;” “sentimental soap operas;” “slushy poetry.

Thinking today of that quality in literature, art, religion, patriotism, conversation – whatever – that most strongly and consistently turns me off. Right -the sentimental. The bathetic.

Lord, deliver us from that in all its forms.
