There are universal experiences mankind faces, no matter where he's from. We are all born, live for some time and die. It's in between life and death where we have a chance to write our story. Our story may be one of riches and glory, or one of pain and despair, but we all have one. We all have free will and the ability to decide each day, what we will do with what we've been given.
It is my desire to become a deeper and more eloquent lover of life. This blog is more than showcasing my latest art, it's for sharing art that is my life. And as I become inspired, I want you to know. When I'm facing something hard, I want to share. When I feel love, admiration, self-pity, or nothing at all, I want to write the experience of an artists life, discovering the possibilities of "what could be" at any given moment.
There is no success without failure, joy without pain, or resolve without a reason to perservere. I am simply a journeyman and these are my tales.
I've recently been introduced a a piece of work twice in one day, from two different sources. Finding this fortuitous and lovely, I wanted to share a quote from this work.
learning to love better,
"I beg you, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer."
- Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet
