Thought for the Day

Poets love all people. Unfortunately, fine art does not create love. On the contrary, creation changes love into the angry rhetoric of politicians: the publicly declared unity of people is practically broken down into fans of the artist and lovers of other styles. Instead of hugging, people start arguing with each other about whose tastes are better. Let us remember the saying “the way to hell is based on good wishes”. Our good intentions lead us to hell. Does Facebook escape this?
We see blog posts either without comments or with conflicting opinions

  1. Interesting question… maybe the better one is if it is an escape if there ARE comments! When I have no comments – and that is most of the time, I have to sense of shipping my images out to a void – an escape? Or banishment? Hmmm…

    I think the problem for at least some of us, or maybe just me – is there is so much wonderful stuff out there that I would like to see and read every day. And of course my time is limited… so I end up not seeing or looking quickly and not writing a comment, or even liking. Not good.

    I do it because it is what I do. Why do you do it? 🙂

    • Thank you for so honest and thoughtful feedback. I too, when have no comments, I have a sense of shipping my images out to a void. That’s why I’m writing- sharing with all what my artworks have taught me and thus meat myself.
