Art is a "Waste of Time"
Well, no, it isn't as it happens.
In the last twenty four hours I have:
Minded my own business before the discobolus at the British Museum.
Paused briefly as I wandered through a room devoted to sketches by Pablo Picasso.
Sat, mostly awake, in a theatre whilst persons unknown, re-created 'Billy Budd' by Benjamin Britten.
I am changed by these things.
Which, I read, is the purpose of art.
