About Me

I wish to further understand the mysteries in this universe through music, art, literature, scientific discovery, observations about the physical world, empathetic experiences of the emotional world, and especially through the human touch of humor and love.

Beauty was a value higher than usefulness. People need useless things even more than things with a use. Just think of it. What is the use of love, of friendship, or worship? None whatsoever. And the same thing goes for beauty. Our consumer society puts usefulness first, and beauty is no better than a side effect. Beauty is assailed from two directions: by the cult of ugliness in the arts and by the cult of utility in everyday life. These 2 cults come together in the world of modern architecture. Put usefulness first and you lose it. Put beauty first and what you do will be useful forever. It turns out nothing is more useful than the useless ." Roger Scruton via 500px http://j.mp/1HlAsRT
