I was invited for a mission to Mars – more precisely, I was challenged by the blogger behind The Mission to Mars to join in the Spread Beauty Challenge. Here is how it works.
- Write ten six-word sentences containing the word beauty.
- Share your favourite quote on beauty.
- Nominate other bloggers to do the same.
Beauty is me in the dark.
Beauty is me when I’m drunk.
Beauty is me when nobody looks.
Beauty is lost and found property.
Beauty is love, life and liberty.
I realise that I only produced five sentences, but I can’t be bothered bothering you with writing even more nonsense than this. You’re welcome.
“Beauty is truth, truth beauty, – that is all / Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.”
These are the closing lines of John Keats’s poem “Ode on a Grecian Urn”. I have no idea what it means, but as an EngLit graduate, I’m obliged to be pretentiously smart.
You: Does the challenge appeal to you? Feel free to take the torch from here! The nomination is open.
