A Thought

Christmas time is associated with much that comes from the artistic imagination: works of pictorial art, music and drama - even the humble school nativity play counts as such. Although Christmas is a time for celebration, it should also be a time for reflection. In keeping with the following quote from Hebbel, maybe there will be some piece of art this Christmas that causes you to ask questions.

"In a work of art the intellect asks questions; it does not answer them."
(Christian Friedrich Hebbel (1813-1863) German poet and dramatist.)
