Saving Grace

A few minutes in the Lollygagger quarter, where art is flowing.
The banning thing is like Betty's boxes. Bright and eye-catching, but after a while, it's all the same thing in a slightly different hue, you know what you're going to get.
Second Life is just as full of slightly sad characters as ever, and just as full of intelligent souls too.

We had a little light show, to lift the soul. 
More than we deserved maybe, for our benefactor was limited to a few square feet of roof tile.
Some people get banned and turn that into a bitter meanness, some take it as a challenge, and turn it into colors, and show up when they are needed. That is SaveMe's grace.
What a refreshing, amazing, re-energizing display.

There's a lot of truth in what they say about quality concepts not being easy to come by. True amazing art is a rarity. Sometimes the people behind crappy art have dreadful difficulties they are facing. horrible then to mess up their 15 minutes of fame. Right?
So where does one draw the line when it comes to liking or not liking? If art is about expressing yourself...

... but then isn't art appreciation about the same thing? Much better to go with the flow, perhaps. To seek out new art and new civilizations, to boldly go...
