“Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art… It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival.” – C. S. Lewis (1898-1963)

What is Art and who has the insider knowledge to be able to say what is good or bad art?

Never let someone tell you that you don’t get ‘it’. Some people can see the beauty in a flat plastered and painted wall, others in the random nature of a Jackson Pollock.

Some people like Heavy Metal, some enjoy nature and the music in their own head.

If an item – be it literature, a painting, music or nature – makes you happy: then enjoy it and never let anyone else tell you that you are wrong.
