Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

Not so silly

“After years of living friendless, having to make up his own talking animal companions, Christopher Robin (now known as Chris Robin) has become an emotionally charged teen artist.

The Birth of Venus

“Botticelli revived the love goddess Venus in the Renaissance, posing her in the modest manner pioneered by the ancient artist Praxiteles, as he sets out not to titillate, but philosophise. According to Plato and his followers the contemplation of physical beauty can lead the mind to heavenly truth. Botticelli's Venus is not a sex object. She is a divine teacher of spiritual enlightenment. Hers is a beauty that heals the world.”
