In defense of beauty. Daily story · 27 March, 2013
  • Marian Dear,

    For the sheer joy of discourse, I will lean in to you a little on the premise of Justice and your statement about Beauty being despised. I agree there is a kind of rebellion happening, an anti beauty movement, but it is only the games of children against the larger thing, the omni and ever-present, the revered, melodic, synchronistic, whole and balanced notion of Beauty, which holds all Truth, stands undiminished as Sebastian who surviving quivers of arrows was rendered more saintly, more loved. To this imperative we are all called, helpless before it, rung like a tuning fork in its presence, and instantly, completely sane.

    This from the top of my head from my saturday morning bed...but....My reverie about Beauty goes on and on and I will get in the ring with you and duke this out over many scotches and midnight fires and walks in the glade my dear dear, in comradely delight.
