This was originally poster on Interruptions.org but I thought it was really cool so:
Looking through a book of drawings by Holbein I realize several moments of truth. A nose (a line) so nose-like. So line-like. And then I think to myself “so what?” It’s not going to solve any of my problems. Then I decide that at the very moment of appreciation I had no problems. Then I decide that this is a pretty profound thought. And that I ought to write it down. This what I have just done. But it doesn’t sound so profound anymore. That’s art for you.
Interruptions.org is brilliant. Check it out.
