I'm intrigued by this quote but have no idea what it means...Do you know?

Aury - I think it's very much up for interpretation. To me it means that just being you is great art. What do you reckon?

Aury said...

Yeah that sounds right. I think it means that everything you do and everything about you from the way you dress to the the way you live can be perceived as art.

Megan said...

Aury - Precisely! But even more so, right down to your "very flesh", as if you don't even have to do anything and you can be as beautiful as the most beautiful poem... It's an awesome quote!
