A is for Art

by dolly21

Hi guys,

I was supposed to start this yesterday but I was really swamped. So, I am starting today. Hope you guys enjoy it.

Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time

The quote above was said by a man called Thomas Merton and I agree with his definition of art. I have never been someone who was into art work but for the last couple of weeks, I have been reading a book called ‘How to be both’ by Ali Smith. In this book, she explores art through her characters.

She seems to feel like art represents all things. Art is much more than paint on a canvas. It is life, love, memories and I think that is something I agree with. I see art as a form of expression and it doesn’t only come in form of paintings. It could be writing or music, just about any piece of expression.

I think that everyone has some form of art in them; it’s just a matter of finding it.

My own way of expression is through writing and unfortunately for me, I have been having trouble writing for the last couple of months and I am only starting to get my groove back.

So pls, pardon my writing for now. I am only starting to love my art once again.
