“Art Just Makes the World Prettier”

…opined someone on the train yesterday (someone who didn’t seem entirely devoid of intelligence, on account of the fact that she seemed to be relating the comment in relation to university courses or some such), alongside the assertion that “physics and chemistry makes the world go round”…

Well of course, yes, I mean art’s just peripheral, isn’t it? I mean of course, we could so easily do without cinema, TV, novels, advertising, fashion, music, computer games, gardens, theatre, make-up, various items of home decor and all those little creative flourishes that make life worth living.

Silly me, thinking art had any value in the world… 😐
