New Books...

I just recieved two books from a friend of mine, Derec Jones/Skint Writer. I highly recommend that you check out his blog and books, because the man is absolutely brilliant. One of the books is a Novel, called The Three Bears, and the other books is a compilation of short stories, called The Walker. There is a short story in the book called "The Walker", and it gives a unique perspective on life.

I have a slew of homework piling over my head, but I will definitely make time for these two books. You can purchase the books directly through him, or you can go to his publishers website.

I conclude, at least in my journey through life, that every thing that everything that comes into contact with our senses, whether it be art, great manuscripts, a flower on a beautiful day, or an exquisite specimen of a woman that is unblemished from time, alters our life in one fashion or another.

Many have asked the question, what is art? Well, many have argued on this very subject for hundreds and perhaps thousands of years. But, I have to inquire, what is not art? Why, life itself can be art. Anything that you put imagination, heart, and soul into could be described as art.

The Encyclopedia Britanica explanation of art.
A visual object or experience consciously created through an expression of skill or imagination.

The term art encompasses diverse media such as painting, sculpture, printmaking, drawing, decorative arts, photography, and installation. The various visual arts exist within a continuum that ranges from purely aesthetic purposes at one end to purely utilitarian purposes at the other. This should by no means be taken as a rigid scheme, however, particularly in cultures in which everyday objects are painstakingly constructed and imbued with meaning.

What say you?
