Thank you. ( I have to admit “any more less important” makes me smile…just the wording, I can’t help myself. )
Someone else mentioned how art separates us from other animals. I really like this. I mean, just like human touch and love is necessary to a baby for survival…
( nearly as vital for sustaining life as food, rest and water http://www.livestrong.com/article/72120-effect-human-contact-newborn-babies/ http://www.nytimes.com/1988/02/02/science/the-experience-of-touch-research-points-to-a-critical-role.html   )
…art gives our daily lives reason to go through the necessary motions for survival.
Art gives survival meaning
