Art Is Life

Art is Life or Our Life is our Art.

My thinking gets into a negative loop that plays over and over when I am depressed. Writing a poem, drawing a picture, going for a walk seems somehow to change the negative pattern enough to inspire different thoughts and actions. The feeling of accomplishment at having completed a poem, a picture or a walk to the mail box is a bonus of life-lifting proportions.

Art is not an addendum to life, I think it is the very centre of it and when we get so far removed from being creative that we forget how, that is when life begins to deteriorate.
