Strike Is In The Air, Na Na Na Na Na...

P It feels as though there is a different strike every day. Upon waking, one feels compelled to ask, 'Who is it that is striking to-day?'
P Still, it can't possibly be bad to stand against the interregnal establishment (in an orderly, legal fashion, of course).

Beyond Art

P What the bonsai-grower does is, without doubt, an art (if done properly, of course), but I found myself unable to call a bonsai a work of art, and so tried to discover why, and was successful: works of art are objects, but bonsai are not objects - they are living things. This makes them superior to works of art, and the art of bonsai, because it is keeping what is made as much as it is making, is superior to other, singular arts (because it is two arts in one).
P Non-bonsai artists shall probably be offended. As a writer, I too am a bit uneasy, but see no flaw in my reasoning.
