A quick apology to readers for the slow posting. I'm in the process of moving, and it is sucking away every spare moment I have.
I have a few posts in the pipeline, but if you're really jonesing, here is a choice John Waters quote from the book Art: A Sex Book.
You have to participate in the art world. You have to learn to see art, but that's what's so exciting. After going around to look at what's in galleries all day long, when you walk home--it doesn't last for more than a couple of hours--but every single thing you see reminds you of art: the trash, the signs, the bus stop. It fades a little as time goes by so you have to return to the galleries to get the 'art' back into your life.
