Andy Goldsworthy, thank you for being

I've had this Netflix DVD for 3 weeks. I've watched it probably 10 times. I don't want to return it and get my own copy. I don't want to be without this DVD.

While many artists strive for permanence, Goldsworthy seems to not only to understand that beauty is temporal, but he celebrates that fact.

I'm inspired to go do something. Something like this. A random, temporal act of beauty.

Rivers and Tides: Working with Time (2003). I highly recommend it. But I won't let you have my copy.
