    Money equals time equals the freedom to be me because I relax by observing as I meandering through life. The occasional photo opp is a major bonus.

    Do you choose money or life? To you does money equal life? Do you count your wealth by the number of things you have?

    Had a few classes way up near the top in the Honors College - intensive German is the one I remember most.

    Wherein I learned my last name is a vowel swap for the German word for helpful - hilfreich.

    Is it what we learn today? Or is it what we learned decades ago that still is actively part of us?

    Obviously both.

    The funny thing is, I can't see the Cathedral of Learning in my mind without juxtaposing the Richard Serra sculpture outside the Carnegie Museum across the way. Probably because my vantage point was always walking down Forbes....

    In our desperate search to elevate everything we do to the highest accolade levels - i.e. art - and everyone to be “artists”, we too often fail to recognize and celebrate that which is “superlatively ordinary” - i.e. : that everyone is capable of creativity. As Chas states : “It is the birthright of every human being.” Actually, if this were not true, we would all be doomed. Is this failure to seize upon the “real”, rather than the “wished for”, not more a sign of desperation and desolation than it is a celebration? We live in an era where even our young grow up anxious, frightened, fearful of today - never mind tomorrow. We hide in the virtual while eschewing the actual. Depression is at an all time high and suicide a considered “logical” consideration in the solving of desperation. This is not a time when real art thrives. It is a time when most of what we express is a desperate cry for therapeutic intervention - a personal rather than universal attempt at being seen, recognized and appreciated. Art, on the other hand is not a mirror. It is a gift of self to others, a celebration of strength, not weakness, a truth to be told, not a plea for acknowledgment. In the end, what we need is a recognition of creative potential before we cry out for the greatness that is "art".

    "Creativity is a way of life and is not the exclusive domain of artists, writers, and scientists. It is the birthright of every human being.
    If we aspire to understand our most distinctively human capacity, the ability to create, we must first acknowledge that there are no universal formulas, certainly no quantifiable methods, and very few reliable road maps to assist us in our quest for authentic expression. The creative process draws on many different energies of the individual. It calls forth our deepest impulses, the full range of our life experiences, our most profound hopes and aspirations, and our most penetrating and insightful observations on society and ourselves, and awakens our search for something more in life than what is offered by the culture in which we live."~ David Ulrich, "The Widening Stream, the Seven Stages of Creativity".

    I love how you balance the apparent paradox of having a curious mind and, at the same time, having a deep respect for life's mysteries. This certainly helps us to understand the importance of art as a way to expand our consciousness. As you said: "A mind aided by art and imagination will think beyond what is visible and thus creates the ability for the logical mind to progress"

    I love your written words and reading your thoughts about art and it´s purpose. Art and the artist´s reasons to produce it are individual.

    I heard this cynical definition a while back.

    "What is it about art that we give it so much importance anyway. Artists are respected by the poor because what they do is an honest way to get out of the slum using one's sheer self as the medium. The money earned is proof pure and simple of the value of that individual... The Artist.
    The picture a mother's son does in jail hangs on her wall as proof that beauty is possible even in the most wretched. And this is a much different idea than the fancier notion that art is a scam and a ripoff. But you could never explain to someone who uses God's gift to enslave that you have used God's gift to be free."

    "Of course we should know from the past and present that the impossible has always been and will always be possible."

    Nothing more needs be said, @Tony Brandstetter, as imagination, the thinking process behind Art is what erases that pesky prefix -im- as possibilities are created.

    I think the art same a wild flower; she spent her days, allowing herself to grow, not many knew of her struggle, but eventually all; knew of her light.

    “Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.”

    Your statement " A world without art is a world where progress has stopped." is so true. Thank you for the nice buzz, Tony.
