Okay, so art is an agreement between creator/spectator.
But does creativity have to be art; it sure doesn't
have to be in agreement. And isn't the fiction of the
silent as real as the creation of the artist?
Reality is what one has, whether it is imagination,
art, or something else. We all have Ladonia, in our
hearts, in the Scandinavian peninsula, and in the
communicational network of the world. That's enough
for me to build on, letting my creativity flow.
