Art is one of the most important things in life . It releases you from whatever degree of rigors you may be experiencing and lures you into a state of creativity removed from the bland and the ordinary . Art is a freedom of expression that transcends the mundane and becomes more believable and desirable than reality . It is , in fact , reality . There can be no denying the apple of your eye , ears , and mind is real . It is the release of our inner psyche and goes a step beyond what can be seen by the fleeting glance of the passing eye .
There is art in song , poetry , writing , painting , and so many other forms . Art never stops happening . It’s just waiting for you to notice it . The easiest example is the art of song . Not the pop songs that are forced upon us , but songs from the heart that the artist writes to express themselves in hopes , perhaps , that someone will be touched by them . If no one is , then at least he has done a service to himself . When forced to write , he winds up faltering . This explains the fall from grace of many artists . Mick Jagger can no longer write songs . It’s been decades since he wrote anything fruitful .
The above image to me is art . It is a restaurant table on the beach at night . It represents a romantic co-existence between people , nature and , in some weird way , the commerce of food . And all this from a picture I took from my smartphone. Art is easier to capture nowadays when anyone can be a movie director , yet it is as difficult as ever to find something striking because of the simplicity of it . The ease with which we show varied pics on social media makes us more difficult to please .
