Art in Life
Friends ask me, are you doing Art? I see Art these days from the corner of my eye, as it darts, streaks, comet like. My little one:
- I showed her a Charlie Chaplain film and she said, "Buster Keaton is better, Daddy", and settled a longstanding open question.
- She called me once during work and said, "I saw the Girl with Pearl Earring, Daddy", meaning the puristic painting, not the book or movie.
- She watched a street drummer in SF and said, "He is not good Daddy, he doesnt sweat like Satchmo", because I told her, you have to sweat to do great.
- She recognized the Joan Miro in de Young and said, "Woman!".
