ragtags studio central: sarah's random this & that

random means "having no definite aim or purpose," (1655), taken from "at random" (1565), "at great speed" (thus, "carelessly, haphazardly"). In 1980s college student slang, it somehow, and sadly, acquired a distinct sense of "inferior, undesirable." (Online Etymology Dictionary, Douglas Harper) Well, okay, fine, Mr. Online Etymology Dictionary person, but THIS is the 21st Century. It's a whole new ball of wax.

View from the garret

Changes in societal structure and in art would
possess more credibility if they had their
origins in the soul and spirit.
If people read the words of the prophets
with closer attention, they would find
the keys to life.

*Marc Chagall*
