art blooms forever

"Even now, all possible feelings do not yet exist. There are still those that lie beyond our capacity and our imagination. From time to time, when a piece of music no one has ever written, or a painting no one has ever painted, or something else impossible to predict, fathom or yet describe takes place, a new feeling enters the world. And then, for the millionth time in the history of feeling, the heart surges, an absorbs the impact."
from "The History of Love" by Nicole Krauss

I am in love with these words. It is so inspiring to me to grasp at the concept of all that has not yet been seen, heard, spoken or experienced. The art of creation and the experience of art will be forever blooming. It encourages the revelation that we can always open our eyes, minds and hearts a little more. I also feel that this supports my belief that we all have the ability to share a unique perspective, to speak truth with our voices and to create positive change. These words are where my passion lives.

As I wander the road of turning my passion into action, these words, among others, will be a compass.
