A true artist is not one who is inspired, but one who inspires others. ― Salvador Dali

I am loving being able to get to the galleries. The Matisse is glorious and the New Era: Doug Aitken at the MCA is worth some time.

Art is soothing and uplifting. It's engaging. Best of all, it inspires you. Inspires you to think or to create. These are important to feed the soul. It is what nourishes us.

I've just booked a flyby to Canberra to see the Jeffrey Smart. I am hoping Omicron doesn't get in the way. May the borders be ever in our favour.

It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see. - Henry David Thoreau

  2. Art, music and drama are so important to our well being. Sad when schools have to eliminate them for budget reasons. - Margy

    1. They're closly linked to the maths brain, which could explain why educational standards are dropping on all fronts. Very sad indeed not to value investing in the human capital of this country.
