amble's in multiple directions. .. as I see it and it always does, I have
great difficulty responding. as I have multi sensory ideas that respond to a
sentence.. a word ,a colour... a sound, be it a horn in early morning
traffic.. or a note captured in an opera by a voice.its that, that
lingers... all of this accounts to why and how we have ideas.. from each
other.. from literature, and from place from and then to where we imagine..
the sound in a voice can evoke the imagination just as if the visual is
notated, be it a drawing or a photograph or whatever.. an object.. an object
can be so beautiful and another not.. what then is beauty?how is beauty
conceived and expelled through the senses? in other words how do we perceive
beauty?(when we see, hear, smell, touch,)? what is this function? is this
what gravitates the sensors towards a new will? a willing to respond to
gesture natural based or man inclined ,and then to create? why are we human?
to create? and to keep this questioning alive..?
