I am looking forward to spending the day at the Ashmolean tomorrow.
Watching Kenneth Clark’s Civilization has rekindled my interest in art.
Art is a staff to help man bear the ills of life. It sweetens life. Since man can only concentrate on one thought at a time, it temporarily drives grief from your mind, leading to a temporary forgetting of grief. Like spirituality, it is a life-enricher and life-enhancer, the sugar and MSG of the mind.
In my opinion, Art is one of the greatest sweeteners, among the sweetest things, in our human experience!! Along with friendship.
And here endeth my rhapsody!!
