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.”
“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.
“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)
