Welcome! A few years ago, I discovered an application that artists employ in their works to bring cultural awareness to their audiences. Having discerned this semiotic theory that applies to literature, music, art, film, and the media, I have devoted the blog, "Theory of Iconic Realism" to explore this theory. The link to the publisher of my book is below. If you or your university would like a copy of this book for your library or if you would like to review it for a scholarly journal, please contact the Edwin Mellen Press at the link listed below. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Thank you for visiting. I hope you will find the information insightful. ~ Dr. Jeanne Iris

Not iconic realism, rather irony and circular condition

Okay, so today was a very odd Monday, there must be some kind of planetary retrograde or something taking place. Anyway, the end of the day was arriving, and a colleague of mine asked if I'd be interested in ordering a pizza. "Sure!" I replied, and quickly put on my red coat to quickly walk over to the Student Center ATM and get some cash. 

That's when it happened. I decided to walk through one of the buildings to avoid the ice outside. However, as I turned the corner in the hallway, I slipped and fell on some melted ice. My cute, Dooney-Burke slid across the hall, and there I was on my knees. Well, thank goodness no one was around to see this....Ah, but had there been, a possible law suit might have been easy to win...and I could have been a millionaire! 

Not the case, however. I picked myself up, dusted myself off, and started all over again, heading toward the ATM for a couple of 20's. When I returned, I noticed the area of my foot that hit the floor was swelling, hurting....a lot! Now, it is a lovely shade of bluish-green, throbbing and determining exactly how I maneuver this crazy frozen world. I have some old crutches, which have come in handy, and I just know that this, too, shall pass. 

Now, here is the irony of the situation. I am now applying ice to this swollen entity at the southern end of my person....ice! ....that which caused this condition in the first place. Full circle.

*** Having visited the hospital, I am now learning to navigate with crutches, for this little spill has resulted in 2 broken bones in my left foot. Should be interesting!
