Living in a fast-paced world that changes before our fingertips, there are aspects of ourselves that seem to come and go. Growing up in life, we can reflect on our evolution from an early age through the middle ages growing up to college and our careers. Thinking hard enough, things came even those things that we have gone through so much to acquire. Some could be very memorable, while here and there can be shades of knick knacks that bestows a slice of joy in life. Likewise, there are mementos that are with us even to the very present. Mementos are just touching the tip, while diving into our inner life, we can even discover that we have aspects of ourselves that continued to now.
When you look at a painting, you can find that there is meaning within the matted board of colored pigments. Drawn from the layers of details upon the face of the artist’s creation, a deeper meaning resides that uncovers the artist’s intent. In the little details, we may discover a reflection of our own, a way of touching our very being. Art has a way of channeling to us a quality that goes beyond that of the ordinary.
Just the other day, I was talking to friend who had a deep question. It was a question about life. He asked, what is a way out of doing the same things everyday, working in a days job, then going to the gym to exercise and workout, and finally going home. For the next morning, you come again to the same repeating pattern. The way he described it was as if his life was in monotony. He asked this question, because it was important and he wanted to find a solution.
