Snippets of Life (from A to Z) “X”

THE LETTER “X”

X marks the spot. Malcolm X certainly made his mark despite being told Xanadu was unattainable. And what beauty in John Singer Sargent’s painting of Madame X wherein he X-rays her enigmatic character with his masterful brush strokes. What of Generation X surpassed by Generation Z who know not of the times when people signed their name with an X, sealed handwritten correspondence with an X and X-rated content wasn’t the normal daily fare. X as an unknown value. Perfectly suited to the global condition of uncertainty, the re-emergence of strong xenophobic tendencies and the seemingly Xerox copied figures and opinions of our time.
