Art in times of crisis

Personally, I’ve found art, in its various forms, the saving grace in my life during challenging times.  I came to digital photography when I was often too ill to do much else than sit on the ground outside with my camera and observe and perhaps, photograph insects and such like.  It gave me something else to focus on (pun intended) other than all the pain I was in. It became my healthy addiction 🙂

Given the tragic effects of the recent swathe of natural disasters across the globe, here’s another person’s perspective on it.

What do YOU think?

The Beauty of Life

Once you have started seeing the beauty of life,
ugliness starts disappearing.
If you start looking at life with joy,
sadness starts disappearing.
You cannot have heaven and hell together,
you can have only one.
It is your choice.

Osho

A glimpse of my new direction :-)

Here’s a brief little teaser of some of which I’ve become involved in recently…….

 

I’ve belived for a long time that the Arts, and being Creative, is a way forward through the morass that humanity appears to have fallen into, to a place where individuality within community is to be celebrated and encouraged.

A chance meeting with a likeminded person almost a year ago is now giving form to that concept, although it’s still very early days and much is continuing to evolve.

So there’s a little Light on the subject for you 🙂
