random thought of the day..

'..i see art in every single aspect of life. life is art, art is life. i can't look at a piece of discarded trash on the ground and not think of art. i can't look at a grocery store shelf filled with wonderful, vibrant colored packages, and not think of art. i can't look at a passing car, with chipping paint, weathered bumper stickers and rusty hubcaps, and not think of art. it's everywhere and everything..'

That's why I am often overwhelmed by everything. It's this noticing, whether it's text or image or sound, it's a constant awareness of surroundings. I don't know how I acquired what seems to be heightened awareness. It's wonderful and yet at times a curse to notice what most people never give a second thought about.

Thanks for the comment in my journal. I still am thinking about what to do.

i knew, you..of all people, would relate to this..

and precisely, it feels like a curse sometimes..i feel like i've got ADD, there's just so much information bombarding me creatively. but, then, that's what living in the here and now is all about. i can't imagine living any other way. i think the thing that distresses me more than anything else, is figuring out a way to channel these impulses so that people can interpret and digest what i place before them. much like you're trying to enlighten people to recognize and embrace their everyday language in a new and different light. i like the phrase 'heightened awareness.' not only because it makes me seem more intelligent ;-) but it's really a perfect description of the type of zen that occurs only when you surrender your linear mind to more abstract thought.

i'm SO GLAD WE MET! have i only mentioned that a kabillion times????

and i am SO looking forward to your creative evolution..whatever it may be.
you really are an inspiration to me.

aw. i knew you'd agree..
i can tell you're so in tune with your surroundings, by your intuitive, playful compositions and the subjects you choose. you can't see, but i'm starting to get the shakes..i need to see more 'pergy' collages! ;-)

I see where you're coming from. It's true and everything, but I can't help but employ the mantra of our friend Coagula: sure, art is every where, but most art sucks.

HAHA!
ah..so true!
i guess i was 'feeling' art outside of the traditional gallery/museum walls. the idea that art/beauty/awareness/sensory stimulation..whatever label you want to place on art and what it means to you..is with us everywhere. no need to pay admission, ya know? it's just a way of looking at the world in a new perspective. adults skipping in public, being a good example ;-)
