Make the Arts a Part of Your Life!

The Dance and the Circus, Marc Chagall

 

Today, I want to share with you one of my favorite quotes by Kurt Vonnegut.

“Go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.”

I really encourage you all to make the arts a part of your life! The arts enrich the conscience, and to me, it is a vital part of life. Art, music, writing, and dance can all be deep and personal experiences for each being, and forms of therapy as well. For example, painting can be a way of relaxation and self expression. What is your favorite creative art form?
