i had a clever quote from Flaubert handy.

i looked at it and it seemed insulting, to Flaubert even.

in the general scheme of things.

it were about ‘perfection’: a concept i struggle to understand.

am reading a book about Sammuel Beckett. his relationship with painting; his attitudes and methods regarding the visual. this picture reminds me a little of Adrien Brouwer – one of Becketts’ favourite painters. he drew lots of gurning drunks.

i like him too.

something which is perfect is what?  Cezanne said that only nature is perfect – maybe it is a religious word. it came up recently in conversations.
