beauty and resolve

the *notion* of beauty:
we like to be near it, have it in our homes, have it in our lives, and hopefully have it in ourselves.
there are even times when we seek to somehow posess it.
is beauty something tangible that can be possessed?

is this the reason that the cosmetic and fashion industries are so lucrative?
is this why we want to be artists or collectors of art?
isn't beauty in the eye of the beholder?
is beauty something that's fleeting?

are there times when we have to resist getting too close to beauty?
can something be both ugly and be beautiful?
is it a matter of perception versus presentation?

i'm uncertain whether or not the two can be mutually exclusive.

random thoughts from the day.
