Spending time in wild places and making art doesn’t fix the world’s problems but it helps me cope. It builds a palette of colors and emotions ready for my brush. It's a gift, not a luxury.
Art in all its forms (visual, dance, music, theater, writing, etc.) brings resilience and beauty to a world that needs it now more than ever. It reminds us that even when the world seems overwhelmingly bleak, beauty and meaning persist. Art is a direct experience of the resilience and determination that are foundational to the human spirit.
We each embody this strength of the human spirit. That’s no small thing and I’m so grateful.
Art is not a luxury. Spending time in nature is not a luxury. You are worthy. Keep going.
