Use the web site that yields a random excerpt from John Cage’s Indeterminacy: New Aspect of Form in Instrumental and Electronic Music and see if you can find or take a photo to represent a selection that appeals to you.
This is probably best done in a blog post so you can share the link to the excerpt you selected (if you right/control click on the number on the top left, you can copy a link to the excerpt). You can copy the text (maybe put it in blockquote text) or use a screen shot, and also include the image you found to go with the selection. Be sure to provide credit for where you found the image.
