A short Sunday meditation on art as currency, in both (or various) realms. And an undeniably entertaining movie reviving the 'D' words: Denial & Defiance & (of course) Delightful.

Now there's a joke on me ... for a few minutes, almost an hour, despite the context, I stopped dancing with Mister D and the 'K' words, Kevorkian & Keizer ... ai ai ai, oh well ... Here's my first-ever use of a 'smiley'

No connection between the two, a juxtaposition in time & space is all ... delightful defiance, transformation towards the good (or something like that), and the good guy wins ... hey!
