My Daily Race Among the Ruins

(The most prescient novel ever created about the destruction of the individual by intrusive, secretive, and corrupting bureaucratic autocracies; a 1925 classic incredibly relevant today still; also, one of Orson Welles’ best films–the 1963 classic starring a dreadfully nervous Tony Perkins following his turn in Psycho)

As I swoop through another day, connecting with Orson Welles and Franz Kafka in pursuit of the best and greatest art ever created in Western civilization before it fell off the radar for millions of North Americans. [If people wish to reconnect with it, one reference point to start is with Rick Steves’ Art of Europe series, currently online, free.]

My life continues to be about aspiration–“A man’s reach must exceed his grasp”–Browning and “An unexamined life is not worth living”–Socrates.

My curiosity leads on to new insights in the kingdoms of immortal Art. I continue to seek for new information, more connections, and more appreciations from the works of creative geniuses in all artistic mediums. Why live life daily at the level of the lowest common denominators?
