I'm beginning to thinkr[einhardt] was wrongnot r[einhardt], but an idea i hadof him that i practicallyworshipped
that said life was theopposite of art
& art was the oppositeof life
& proud of it
but i think lifehas somethingto do with art
& it's just a matterof finding
the special point
at which the two of themget together.
