Art exists for the sake of its beauty alone.

I'm not sure if I entirely agree with the idea, but it does give satisfaction to those who feel intimidated by art and the almost inevitable analysis that comes along with it. The eye can appreciate art just for its beauty, not for its underlying meaning (If there really is one.) You don't have to philosophize, you don't have to try to determine what the artist was feeling when he created the piece or even what the motivation for it was. You merely have to be able to register what is aesthetically pleasing to you.

I personally love the analysis- literature, art, what have you. How do you all feel? Are you aesthetists?

If I could have it back, all the time that we wasted I'd only waste it again

Whenever you think of Valentine's Day, you think of peacocks. Just kidding. But seriously, this is a beautiful picture.

Happy V-Day.

I shouldn't turn my back on sweet smelling Blackberry Stone

I am in love with these pictures. Seriously. in. love. I have featured the photographer Natasha before with a photo of the day post, but I just needed to post more. There are seriously so many wonderful ones on her flickr. Go see!

Actress of the Moment: Hailee Steinfeld

One of my favorite actresses, Hailee Steinfeld is the girl of the moment, earing an Oscar nom at the tender age of fourteen. Her performance in True Grit was incredible as she expertly tackled dialogue seasoned professionals would have trouble with. She truly is an inspiration! Go see True Grit!

Bio: Fresh faced, scene stealer teen Hailee Steinfeld made her mark on both the small screen and big all before the age of 15, including most recently in the Coen brothers' Wild West pot boiler, True Grit.

Born in Twin Oaks, California, Steinfeld was home schooled most of her life, before a role in a K-Mart commercial led the actress-to-be to land small parts on the TV series Back to You, and Sons of Tucson. Still a relative unknown, in 2010 Steinfeld snagged a critical role in True Grit, a remake of the John Wayne classic, staring opposite Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon.
