Aesthetics: always, everywhere – almost

Pulling down wallpaper in a house I’m decorating and doing up I discovered the striped wallpaper you see here. Everywhere we look there is something aesthetic, something pleasing, if not to the eye to the senses. The metaphysics of it I won’t speak of here. Instead let us remember the awful condition of prisoners and especially those in North Korea who are packed in tight with other inmates and if reports are to be believed, can’t even sit. Some people sadly are in very horrid circumstances and if we do believe in prayer we should pray for them and if we believe in some form of action we should try somehow to relieve the plight of those who cannot even enjoy the simplest of aesthetic experiences.
