Through the ages it is well documented and expressed that art is not reserved for a lucky few.
Art is a human right.
We were all born with the ability to create.
Time may shift our desires and we may leave our finger paints in the past, however, a life lived artfully does not require traditional tools. Look around your kitchen or your garden and you may see your art studio, the space where you create your masterpieces.
Wherever this place may be, honor it as the sacred space it is.
Art is the ability to know human emotion.
Those of us who have experienced pain
and suffering have borne witness to unflinching truths.
We have stayed with emotions that are not easy to house.
Chronic pain will make a phoenix out of the most hesitant of fliers.
It burns us down over and over again without destroying our innate light.
We are recreating ourselves in a million different ways.
Indeed this is a sacred art form.
Whether you ever lift brush to canvas or voice to song,
should you find yourself writing prose or
planting posies ... know that
an artist's heart lives
are of great value to us all.
