the interesting idea... the start of this project... the conversations to come

I'm a member of Post Crossing, the internet site for postcard exchange. I sent a card to another Post Crosser, Ilona from Germany. She asked that people tell her which magical power they would like to have. Her question really made me think!

In turn, I thought it would be an interesting project to ask people to pose Thought-Provoking Questions. I would do my best to answer with my opinion, and I would encourage others to add theirs.

And, so was born this blog! I hope that it will be the home for many interesting conversations in the year ahead!

Beauty, in the eye of...

On a very cool card from Estonia, Kaia writes,

Should Art be beautiful?

Who's to say what beautiful is?

Once, I was at a small gallery/gift store kind of establishment with my in-laws. There was a W-I-D-E range of artwork on the walls. My MIL asked what I liked. I replied, "no offense, mom, but the best way for you to pick what I would like is to pick what you don't like." I knew that our tastes were just that different.

Art should move me - a little, a lot, but somehow.
