Look past the faults.
Keep moving forward.

A thought du jour, my daily breath includes collected and conceived observations, questions of life, fortune cookie philosophies, reminders, messages of peace and simplicity, unsolicited advice, inspirations, quotes and words that got me thinking. They may get you thinking too . . .
So, I make mistakes.
An oversight or three, here and there, or an error or lack of judgment can (and will) happen. My lack of foresight simply happens.
We do not learn from our mistakes, but rather we learn from the experience.
You cannot prepare yourself for all probabilities knowing a mistake is a likely possibility.
Experience comes from noticing what you are paying attention to.
Maybe this Moon
with the power it bleeds
will illuminate more
Maybe this Moon
it simply cannot forget.
Some of us will relate
while others regret.
Maybe that Moon knows
what it is all worth
and sets an example
for those looking up
from this earth.

Still I write.

By design or by default, art is devised to define, or delineate, the reality of our time and the humankind it represents.
You cannot (therefore should not) take for granted the art that surrounds you. In any state there is an increased perception of life.
Art is life. Life is art.
Live with it.
Art does not need to be explained, it needs to be experienced.
Be open to the experience. There are no excuses.
Do not question the why, or the how, or when.
Look at it from all angles. Art is as subjective as it is relative, it need not be serious (but can be); there is a fine line between the obvious and the obtrusive.
Art is open to mindful interpretation whether romantic or reckless, concrete or abstract, physical or visual. Art confronts your emotions as much as it soothes your soul. It moves you forward.
It is spiritual.
Art is meditation, mediation between all that is unsettled in your heart and everything you find comfort in.
Do not ignore or overlook your art; it is what you are and all you can be, if allowed the presence and place it deserves.
