This is probably why “aesthetics”, a term coined by the German philosopher Alexander Baumgarten in 1735, refers not only to the study of art but also to sensory experience coupled with feelings regardless of the nature of its object.

my gut is populated by an overgrowth of bacteria with the very pretty name of Klebsiella, and this is likely the cause of my GI discomfort which has made me literally dyspeptic much of the time, and so swollen around the middle that even the prettiest dress doesn’t look quite right /
When am I supposed to blog about cicadas and transvestism and the Japanese avant-garde and stop-motion animation and Joseph-Cornell-influenced-interior decoration? When am I supposed to plan my workshop, Baroqueify!, to which I am so looking forward in the fall?

When will I make a daylong collage movie? When will I sew a ballgown? When will I go to Burma?
A hand came out of the sky and folded the origami /

* The basket seems to be full of soft pink and purply fuzz balls, the balls of some wild cats who now roam the great jungles and dry hills with no balls, yowling.

Prisoners’ families and other oil workers who crowded the court room told journalists that they were “shocked”.
