The untitled piece of paper you are reading right now   

 

To be completely honest I haven’t been feeling it lately. There are days when I can’t even manage to get dressed and out of bed. Days pass when I do not manage to get out of bed. Trapped inside a hellish warm bed thinking about ART. What do you think about? Producing art?

I try to see/watch the plants grow. I look in/up, to the roof, waiting for the time to pass.

 

ART is supposed to be, it’s too important to write it any other way than in capital letters. Like this <A>R<T> also why not? Does it just look better and/or has it got more feeling to it?
