How often does it happen to you that you are in museum looking at art and you notice people going first to the little cards or papers that hold a description about the art and reading it before even looking at what it describes? By doing that, don’t we prejudge an artwork and fill ourselves with another person’s impression and facts that end up closing us to the natural way of being with something? Aren’t there two parts of us (at least) that can register new impressions? Don’t we register things consciously with our senses while another unseen part of us takes it in in a whole other manner that we cannot consciously comprehend? Wouldn’t it be better to give ourselves the chance first to detect art before filling our heads with information?

Holiday Time

5 08 2011

Other than a work event this weekend I am now off for the next 10 days.

Music will be an important part of those days as we travel and spend time together as a family. It is though a tough task to decide what music to take or what playlist to create.

My main problem is that of mood, I can’t tell you what I am going to feel like listening to next Thursday or even tomorrow. This often means selecting ‘safe’ music for my trips. One benefit of the playlist though is that you can throw in a few randoms.

Anyway here’s to hoping for some good weather.

Need bigger more efficient batteries

26 01 2011

Travelling on a train today to and from London. I use my HTC Desire to help with the monotony and provide some music. Trouble is even a fully charged battery lasts less than 8 hours, they need to be more efficient or bigger – I prefer efficient!
