It sucks that no matter what, there are stubborn bigots like this out there that ruin communities. This person was bashing the price someone would pay for a work of art… dude, I know you hate this, but a female was the only person with enough balls to stand up to you.
How’s that for irony?
“Love me when I least deserve it, because that is when I really need it.”
— Swedish Proverb
If all of us could remember this, the world would be less full of flakey friends (and even significant others) that cannot truly be depended on, and I think everyone would be much happier.
I have noticed how difficult it is (for myself, at least) to remember to be patient and understanding when someone has let me down, but half of the time you find out there are other things going on in a person’s life that should make you more understanding.
I am making a real effort to not get so upset about little things anymore, and to appreciate the friendships I have and the loving relationship I’m in for what they are.
If you know me personally, I want you to know that my disappearance during the duration of this semester is nothing against you! I am just taking eighteen credit hours, again, on top of my scholars program, starting two businesses, and trying to focus on creating more art, maintaining my health, and nurturing my long-distance relationship.
I am pretty terrified because I feel like I may be forgetting something, too.
I just want to be back in New England.
Art is fundamentally a survival device of the species. Otherwise it wouldn’t be so persistent. It wouldn’t be in every culture. We wouldn’t know about it…
How does art help you survive? It helps us survive by making us attentive. In a simplistic way, when you go past a forest and you look at it and you say, ‘that looks just like Cézanne.’ And you realize Cézanne has made you see the reality of the forest in a way that you never could have seen before. He’s made you attentive. Every work of art that you care about makes us attentive. And if it doesn’t do that it ain’t art.” —Milton Glaser: first graphic designer to win the National Medal of Arts.
