art failure

I didn't go to a gallery this weekend. On Wednesday I lost my coat, hat, scarf and my three favourite pens in post-Christmas-dinner bar/taxi events, and had to replace them yesterday. Today... I just didn't go anywhere. This is going against my unstated goal to visit at least one gallery or other Approved Cultural Improvement Facility every week. I suppose I will have to fill in during this week now.

It's far too easy to just slip into the local routine, back and forward between home, market, shops, pub. I am actually a proper "local" now at my preferred pub; I know other regulars by name, I know all the staff by name, and this is me who is famously bad at names and has been known to forget "mojito". While going out to galleries might not be some sort of overwhelming transformative experience, I like it and it makes me think and I need to do it more, because it's part of keeping moving. You've got to keep moving, haven't you? If you're moving, the speed at which you're sinking seems relatively slower. A bullet fired might fall just as quickly as a pebble dropped, but people notice the bullet falling less. Keep moving, keep moving, new languages new places new thoughts, I'm not even doing 1% of what I could be there and it means lots in the end oh yes.

though I have gathered a lot of data on what Guinness is like with various shots, recently

Art and culture are one of the connections to life and creativity. A world without them would probably be unbearable so we need to support them as best we can. Have a look at the London Art and Culture group on the web.

This poor kid desperately needs a Google lesson! The number of people I have had to teach the basic Boolean plus, minus and quotation marks lesson of searching shows that a You Tube video is needed on this ..... preferably without the word Boolean in it.
