Art evokes the mystery without which the world would not exist.
The surreal is but reality that has not been disconnected from its mystery.
To be a surrealist means barring from your mind all remembrance of what you have seen, and being always on the lookout for what has never been.

Thank you to Tony at http://www.neoclassics.blogspot.com/2012/12/empire-of-light-rene-magritte.html for posting the beautiful Magritte painting, "Empire of Light," which reminded me.
The title is alluding to a speech, "The Russian Enigma," given by Winston Churchill on October 1, 1939.
What is the true nature of reality? That question continues to intrigue me....
