ArtHolidayKleeI’m not sure which this quote says more about: holidays (I think he’s referring to vacations) or art. Both are engaged for entertainment and for novelty. We go looking for something out of the ordinary, different from the routine of our everyday lives. We hope to be surprised, even amazed, and to come back from the experience changed, but holding onto the new is hard. It becomes part of us and joins the old and familiar in no time at all.
