An intriguing story and well-told. I could see the whole thing from your descriptions.

I've gone back to school for a degree in graphic design, so I've had to take various art classes. In one class we had a discussion about this very topic: what makes art, art? We all agreed that beauty is definitely in the eye of he beholder. My final project was based around a visit to a local art museum. I have to admit that after having been through the class, I viewed each piece a lot differently than I would have prior. However, I still marvel at certain works of "art" at which I simply shake my head.

I think I would have liked to see such a boulder!

I agree with this being a prime example of art being in the eye of the beholder. I think the true art in this boulder must have been the art of getting it to the museum.

You did a great job of describing the journey and your experience in it.

I thought the best artistry was your description of the stationary contraption. I could picture it with vivid colourful clarity.Good take on topic.

You did a fine job of painting a picture with your words. I often look at things in nature and just am in awe of the greatest artist in the universe--God. You did a great job of showing how to look through different eyes to see the beauty right before us.
I was fascinated with your story of the big rock. Your descriptions were outstanding. I, too, fail to see the beauty or meaning of some pieces called "art."

In total agreement with your assessment of some pieces of "art." You told this story well and made good points. Kudos.
