CYRIL. Well, before you read it to me, I should like to ask you a question. What do you mean by saying that life, ‘poor, probable,uninteresting human life,’ will try to reproduce the marvels of art? I can quite understand your objection to art being treated as a mirror. You think it would reduce genius to the position of a cracked looking – glass. But you don’t mean to say that you seriously believe that Life imitates Art, that Life in fact is the mirror, and Art the reality?
VIVIAN. Certainly I do. Paradox though it may seem – and paradoxes are always dangerous things – it is none the less true that Life imitates art far more than Art imitates life….
All that I desire to point out is the general principle that Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life, and I feel sure that if you think seriously about it you will find that it is true. Life holds the mirror up to Art, and either reproduces some strange type imagined by painter or sculptor, or realises in fact what has been dreamed in fiction…

Welcome to t-maker’s Blog. This is the first post to my blog at WordPress.com. Now I’m just learning how to work with it :-).

I would like to post to this blog some of my photos taken in the last few years. More generally, I’m going to use this blog as a kind of online notebook (since development on google notebook was stopped ;-)) and save here something I don’t want to forget, obtaining as a result a miscellaneous set of notes about music, art, history, and so on.

Now I’ll add the first image. Here is one of my photos on Flickr.
