Art just is.

We live in a very modern world, where technology replaced most things, including art.

Why go to a theatre if you can see the play online?

Why buy an original painting, if you can buy any painting from a store?

Why attend a dance class, when you can “learn” all about it in a club?

So, I ask you, what does ART mean to you? How can you define this extraordinary thing that gives life a little bit of spark? This thing that can still make you dream?

“PHOTOGRAPHY is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. It has little to do with the things you see, and everything to do with how you see it.”

“MUSIC is a piece of art that goes in the ears straight to the heart.”

“ART exists beacuse life is not enough.”

” ART washes away from the soul, the dust of everyday life.”

I always enjoy going to my peaceful corner, take my pencils, and put it all on paper… some people might call my drawings art… others might say that even a 5 year old can do what I do…all I know is that for me is MY ALL in that very moment.

And the best part about art, is that ART HAS NO RULES.

So, as Vincent Van Gogh once said, ” I dream my painting, and then I paint my dream.”

And let’s not forget that ” Art has the role in education of helping childrean becoming more like themselves instead of more like everyone else.”

So, create your own kind of art. You’d be surprised of what you’re capable of 🙂

 

 

 

Once in a blue moon

Once in a blue moon… 

First time I came across this expression, I was mesmerized by it, even though I didn’t know what exactly does it mean….

…I started looking for a definition, and as it turns out it means something rare.

So, then I went further on, and thought : What is it rare in the world?

Well, if you come to think of it, soo many things become rarities : values, true beauty ,kindness, a smile on a person’s face walking down the street…… even common sense, is not often found.

But true love and a faithful partner, the true concept of a family,respect towards one another  …now this are things that happen once in a blue moon. And it’s very sad, in a way, because all this should be a ” normal” thing….but then again, what is normal nowadays?

Today I was reading an article about breastfeeding in public… and there are many opinions about it. But leaving all the opinions aside, when did it become normal for a woman to show her breasts in a small size top, but abnormal to breastfeed her child?( not critizing, just pointing out the truth). A thing that is soo natural to do…

And when did it become something normal, to see on the news that x people were killed in an air raid, or shot by someone?

When did all this become our normality?

And when did normal become something abnormal, weird even? Or a thing that “happens once in a blue moon”?

So, as you see, this phrase expresses soo much in just a few words….

…And each and every one of us, can choose which meaning to give to this….

So choose wisely, and if this few words don’t have a meaning for you, give it a meaning…something that will make a difference…something that will count. Something positive and something to look forward to.
