FIGHTING FOR THE ARTS

As fiscal budgets are stretched
to impossible deficits --
due to billions spent on
  wars in foreign lands --
it's always the arts
where funding is cut.

Winston Churchill fought against
cutting the arts during World War II
with a worthwhile argument.

The arts:
Worth fighting for!

  2. They are worth fighting for! As a teacher I can attest to the fact that the arts take quite a backseat to everything else. A shame, for certain.

  3. Naturalmente que merece la pena luchar por el arte... El hombre es capaz de crear belleza y hacerla perdurar para recreo de futuras generaciones.

  5. El arte siempre es suelo y sustrato sobre el que caminamos y alas que sostienen lo que sońamos.
    El arte es isla de luz y encanto

  7. Yes!- Must fight that.... What a wise man he was. Always love reading your comments Rick. You have only a month to visit me in Australia, off the 'Netherlands' to live (after 22 years overseas). So my weekend(s) are now full of catch ups, sleepovers, drinks, more drinks, coffee and good food before we go. And what are you up to this weekend? x
