Most anything is worth contemplating. Even a cardboard box.
Art should concern itself with beauty, otherwise it's research.
You can't be odd today. You can't be peculiar. You will be marginalized for it.
We cast anger in a negative light. It's healthy to be angry. It's the only sane emotion left.
The more there is of something the less value it holds.
Consequently, a person is less valuable than ever.
In a world of seven billion, there are few originals.
These days one chooses their identity from a series of color swatches.
Knowledge has been reduced to data.
Education, no longer relevant, is replaced by job-training.
Enlightenment is a thing of the past.
Decency is dwindling.
Civilization is no longer civil.
Still, the world remains devastatingly beautiful.
I'm looking for something.
