Despite Facts

Despite the fact that it is painfully clear I do not know how to blog, I persist. What's to blogging? You just put your opinion down in writing and post it for all to see. That's it, right? How hard can it be?

Already, I'm too bored to go on. There's the hitch. It's not just your opinion in writing, I'm okay at that. It's your opinion in writing interesting enough to read. This is where I get into trouble. Now I'm becoming a derivative blogger; blogging about blogging. Where does it end?

Here is my posit for this post: Objective beauty, in art, music, and life, exists.

Sure, there will always be songs, books, movies, and even people that appeal to a sense of nostalgia rather than our finely honed judgement of these items, but I'm not talking about that or the flipside of that - things that are hated for prejudicial reasons. I'm talking about, as an adult, seeing or experiencing a piece of art and being able to judge its objective beauty. This obviously flies in the face of "Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder", but it's a fascinating thought that I need to explore further.
