MUSIC.ART.CULTURE.LIFE ~ Beauty is a call. Beauty is a shock. Beauty is a wound that raises us above the world and into the realm of the transcendent. Welcome to Call.
In ancient Greek the word for beauty is derived from a word which literally means a call.
Beauty is a call. Beauty is a shock. Beauty is a wound that raises us above the world of what philosopher Jacques Maritain called our sense needs and sentimental egos–into the realm of the transcendent.
