    Art for Art's sake

    As some of you know I have been running a blog on art (visual arts, photography, music, architecture) since over 2 years. This year I really suffered from blogging blues and the blog was nearly dead. So I decided to purge the whole content and start afresh. Result: a wave of inspiration and 90 topics within a month.

    Art for art's sake.

    Hi Art

    Looks excellent.

    I'll be checking it out more thoroughly when I have the time.

    Just on first glance, a couple of comments.

    I read Daniel J. Levitin's book This Is Your Brain On Music, and it mentions (if I recall correctly) that both hemispheres of the brain are active when listening to (and playing) music. But I think I still get your point.

    I think Audrey Hepburn's awesome! Nice hommage. Or is it a tribute? Anyway, well done to both of you.
