Delight never happens when you know too much.

16 Jul

Delight should be man’s response to art as it pops up unexpectedly here and there in our environment … as man creates or as it is found in nature. One never understands art or art forms and responding comes only when we are fully awake and alive.

Delight is satisfying, immediate, better than cute.
Delight is filled with joy, spontaneous, accidental.
Delight is irrational, irreverent.
Delight is to expect the unexpected.
Delight is a giggle unexplained.

Delight never happens when you know too much.
