Beauty Part 4

Wow. I just re-read my last post. Wow. Lemmy...beautiful? EEEEKKK! Actually, I stand by my statement. When in doubt, drop an old adage. "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."

As a beholder, my tastes run from the very normal, very traditional (I, like millions of soccer moms, find Van Gogh's "Sunflowers" simply gorgeous) to the very bizarre. I look at Salvador Dali's work and find it equally beautiful, and I am in no way rendered nonplussed at his visual assault.

What can I say? I am the product of a shy, librarian mother who gardens and once played the autoharp, and of a crazy, rocker-guy dad who started gigging at 17 and once played with names you wouldn't recognize and with some you definitely would.

I think if I were a cereal, I would be one of those well balanced yuppie ones. But sugarcoated all kiddie style. And I'd have the really cool prize that would require you to construct it yourself, like a sci-fi toy. Like a robot.

'Cause robots are beautiful.

Have a wonderful weekend all!
