Just came across this quote on Twitter (via the ArtSharks link)
Art validates us beyond what anyone else can do for us. Anne Copeland
I'm not sure who Anne Copland is - as often happens when I write that, the person in question responds, so here's hoping!
Incidentally there's an intriguing video (see below) on the same site of the eight years of photos of the blogger passing by in just over a minute. The music's pretty awful (to my ears) but the video's worth watching.
