There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.

Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.

Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.

So much of the things we buy today seem only to last for a little while.
Our attention span seems to just a few seconds until the next click
The museums are filled with creations of centuries of long ago
What is the art of this generation that will endure for centuries?

    This is a difficult question to ask me, @jackelliot, probably because, as it is, I really belong to the past generation and I feel like my best most suitable place for me to be disposed of would be a dusty museum's rear, out of sight, from where, from time to time, to pop out just to contemplate the beauty of the museum's pieces of art, which are the kind of art I'm more accustomed to enjoy looking at.

    However, as to the current generation's art, I suppose the world's largest and fully packed with striking creativity pieces is the web, since I think digital memory is almost indelible and, definitely, we all who post comments on the Internet are kind of would-be artists in a way.

    Now, I'd like to submit you a piece which, in my opinion, would deserve being displayed in a museum... as long as you can stay still in deep contemplation.
    Ladies and gentlemans: Mr. Freddy Mercury and The Queens.

    What is art @jackelliot? I think there's a place for all kinds of art. It doesn't mean we have to like it all.

    @Jackelliot, I guess Mandelbrot sets will last as maths is eternal. ;) I have even seen them in one of Second Life exhibitions. ;)
