Art for art's sake?

Random messages about art. The painting is to be found in a post office: Art doesn't speak until spoken to and art solves nothing...

The other sign is the name of a gallery now closed. That figures with such a name. In defense of art I must say that it helps us dream, react, externalize, internalize. To me it is like the consolation of a far away friend.


  1. Tumbleweed,

    Can you please type out the whole message on the noticeboard?

    Even with my glasses plus a magnifying glass I can't read every word.

    It seems to be common knowledge that 'every age has its charm', but I can only feel that - together with the condition of my body - my senses are more and more speedily deteriorating.

    I'm desperately looking for a way to be able to accept this.

    All suggestions are welcome.

    Big hugh,



  2. dear Rockcastle: you just have to click on the pictures and they will fill your whole screen. Remember I am older than you!!

  3. Yes, it works.

    Not only is my sight failing, but even my brains don't seem to be working properly any more.

    I always click on pictures to make them fill my whole screen, but for one reason or another I've never tried clicking on the ones in your blog.
