san francisco today!!

"art is born from extremes, and in fits of depression, agony, sadness, euphoria, lust and unfathomable love, a moment is created that all of the boring rote mechanics can identify with in passing, and for those who connect on a deeper level, it is crippling. visual, audio, literary..all of it. when then spirits of eternity find a conduit in some poor blue collar person who has a wandering or sensitive heart. the extremes are recorded and spewed into the middle to be understood, celebrated, undermined, marketed, dismissed or suffered."

Interesting citation, is this yours or did you get it from somewhere? Are you a Van Gogh fan? Or did he just come to mind because of his extremes in character?

Did you get to see any San Fran sites? DO I ask too many questions? ;) LOL Hope you had a great day. See you in a week.

It's mine, and I chose Van Gogh because he is a good example of what I'm talking about.

I agree, Van Gogh is a good illustration for your point. Van Gogh is not my favorite artist, but I do love some of his work. I'm not really who my favorite artist would be in actuality. There is a large measure of truth in your comment and it is extremely well stated. :)
