Art Triumphs Where Memory Fails

By Rodjonesartist
Art Triumphs Where Memory Fails One ​night ​when ​I ​was ​walking ​down ​the ​Champ ​Elysees ​I ​looked ​up ​at ​the ​Arc
de ​Triomphe. Witnessing ​various ​people ​and ​I ​suspect ​many ​tourists ​enjoying ​the ​sights ​of Paris ​standing ​under ​and ​around ​the ​arch.I ​thought ​deeply ​about ​the ​magnificent ​arch ​before ​me ​and ​that ​it represents. ​I ​wondered ​what ​sights ​and ​scenes ​will ​be ​forever ​embedded ​in ​their ​memory.

This ​thinking ​gave ​way ​to ​the ​great ​museums ​of ​Paris ​like ​the ​Centre
Pompidou, ​Louvre ​Museum ​and ​Musee ​d’Orsay probably ​representing ​the ​crème ​de ​la ​crème ​of ​the ​world¹s ​finest ​art.

So ​what ​does ​the ​arch ​and ​the ​museums ​have ​in ​common? They ​both ​represent ​the ​triumphs ​of ​man, ​one ​the ​sorrows ​and ​victories ​of
war, ​the ​other ​passions ​of ​the ​creative ​soul.You ​may ​in ​your ​travels ​bear ​witness ​to ​the ​works ​of ​man, ​both ​great ​and small. ​But ​as ​your ​memories ​fade, ​the ​works ​live ​on.
