Day 112: Life and Art. I often go to BrainyQuotes.com for inspiring quotes. Today I came across one about 2 things I care a lot about, Life and Art. “Life beats down and crushes the soul and art reminds you that you have one,” by Stella Adler.
Life is full of ups and downs as we all know. The stresses of life can and do get us down. I don’t know about you but when I get down and out I tend to look to Mother Nature to defuse stress. My soul is fed when I grab my camera, hop in my Jeep and go down the road in search of beautifully lit scenery. Other people may go to the gym to work off some frustration, while others might go to seek the solace of a good friend.
In my life art is invigorating! Art means something different to each of us. Art may mean a painting in a gallery, a sculpture in a park, graffiti on a train, a poem, a song, a flower in a garden or the sun setting over the mountains. The old saying that goes “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” holds true for art. Whatever we think art is, it is therapeutic. Art has a unique way of transcending us from this hectic and chaotic world both figuratively and physically to a place that feeds our soul and heals our mind, body and spirit!
Go out in the world today and choose happiness, make empowered choices, live in a spirit of gratitude, seek out art and be curious and creative!
What does “art” mean to you? Where do you go to find art?
