Start

Standard

Today, I will start.  Start to enjoy, to smile, to laugh, to think, to care, to love…to be.

“There is only one day left, always starting over: it is given to us at dawn and taken away from us at dusk.”
Jean-Paul Sartre

What do we see?

Standard

“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”  Henry David Thoreau

I agree with Thoreau – what we see is all that really matters.  About a month ago, I was given the opportunity to photograph the work of an aspiring Vancouver artist. The title of his work was Daily Disasters.

The colours reflect the colours of Vancouver: bright flowers with blue skies and rain clouds.

 

 

 

 

The artist remains a mystery to me.  His paintings do not hang in an art gallery.  They belong to the public.

I see art, although some tell me it really is a garbage can.

 

 

 

A Different Drummer

Standard

“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.  Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.”

 Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)
