… food for thought …

This really is a “thought for the day” :

“Occasionally art acts as a slap in the face. It challenges us to take a leap we might feel ill prepared for, but, as we’ve all experienced at some point in our lives, when we do finally let down our guard or resistance, marvelously dramatic changes can occur.
Beauty is. We place parameters around what is beautiful and what’s excluded from that definition. In this respect our experience of the new can be expansive, inclusive. More of the world becomes available to us in the form of nourishment, stimulation. “

Taken from an interview with David Sylvian, musician and poet, and  – in my opinion anyway – a truly gifted and brilliant individual.

The full interview can be found here. Enjoy. It’s worth the time.

I am going to be chewing on the words and ideas in this discussion for some time.
