The magic of art

03F87227-DDB0-4AC5-96CA-28729BE8C84D

We can disagree on many things

But we can agree on the beauty of art

On the heights a poem takes us to

On how a painting moves us

On the sublime feelings we get from music

Art lifts our spirit

It touches our soul

It enlightens us

And as we share with each other

These beautiful things

As we celebrate what we have in common

We feel closer

And what can be more wonderful than art

As something to have in common

Morning pages

3717CB9F-7EED-4738-AAB9-2219DFF94BCEMorning pages
Write what you want
Empty your cup
Let your mind roam around and explore
There is no particular goal
Write about what has been
Write about what’s to come
Write about your hope and dreams
Just write
We all need to express ourselves
We need to be listened to
Your pages are your companion
Always ready to listen to you
Morning pages
Write what you want
Empty your cup
This is your gift to you

Spirit

A smile is a smile
No matter our race or class or nationality
Tears are tears
No matter where we are from

Laughter is exhilarating
No matter who is laughing
Heartache is painful
No matter the colour our skin

Hope gives us wings
No matter where we were born

Despair makes our days
Cloudy and dark
No matter how rich or poor we are

Kindness and a loving heart
Don’t depend on what we look like

Patience and humility
Don’t have an outward cause

Our essence
Our qualities
How we make others feel
And how we feel
Don’t depend on external forms
They emanate from and are felt
By the spirit inside all of us
