Quote of the Day – February 23 2013

“It will do you no harm to find yourself ridiculous.
Resign yourself to be the fool you are…
…We must always take risks. That is our destiny…”
― T.S. Eliot


What would life be without risk? Whether it be in a leap of thought, doing something labeled ‘dangerous’ for the first time, trusting a stranger or sometimes even trusting a friend, trusting our selves, risk becomes part of life. Everytime we choose to love or cry in front of another or even occasionally leave our house (or climb up on a chair or a ladder) we take a risk.
What is it that we risk exactly? Usually when the risk is physical, it results in some kind of fall or injury, When it us an emotional risk we chance damaging some concept of ourselves that we once had. It almost always results in the benefit of greater self-knowledge but usually that is gained only after some type of fall as well.  We need these falls at times to understand ourselves better and to be able to see through our delusions. That’s why we put them in our way. If we don’t take risks to better learn who we are than we lose the lesson
Blessings, G

Quote of the Day – October 20 2011

‎”A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.”
–Antoine de Saint-Exupery

All it takes is a bit of vision. If each being was seen by someone with vision, we would all be known as the radiant beings that we are. In my life, I have met very few people whom I found ugly or unattractive, usually it takes perhaps just one quality to make each person shine… -g a rosenberg

Art of the Day – April 4 2011 – Abstraction

I’ve been contemplating abstraction in art and life and what our consciousness does with it. From the time we’re kids, we love abstraction. We look at clouds and we tell each other the shapes they make for us. We do the same with puddles of water, tea leaves and ink blots. We seem to be meaning-seeking individual. If the meaning at first glance does not appear inherent, we find meaning. Perhaps it is our subconscious that provides the meaning, perhaps it is a higher part of ourselves using the perceived amorphousness to give us clues about things that would help us on our journey.
In art, i find this to be true not only for the viewer but also for the artist. Often, I have had friends tell me that they see things in my art that I have not intentionally put there. We perceive what we need. The universe is awesome that way.
