In other woidz, a big deal.
I was just telling somebody the other day about my mother and I trying to say "big deal"--- just those two words, as their own saying/utterance/sentence--- without sarcasm. It ain't easy, is it? You can maybe construct a context around it to help. But it takes some tone-of-voice finesse even to approach it, when all you get is "Big deal." Throw in that one little article, however, and it's a piece of cake (and a regular, sarcasm-free "big deal").
Here I put some words about art and what it means for quality of life and a sense of meaning in the world, which is (the world) so seemingly lacking in meaning for me, so much of the time. So much of the time, especially when I'm on my own, things can get pretty floaty, and surreal, and disconnected-feeling. Art transports. Sometimes. Y'know?
