One of Marcel Proust's central ideas was that love, youth, health, prosperity etc etc can come and go, but Art stays with us till the end, Art is the true salvation. Art in a general sense of the term - not just painting and sculpture, but pursuits that may appear trivial and pointless to an outside onlooker while being dear and deeply involving to us. History of aviation with all its facets (including the DCS masterpiece) is a fantastic example too. Enjoy and "keep on painting"!
