Every career can be difficult at times – doctor, lawyer, teacher or trainer. Even people who own a marketing firm can have bad days! What keeps us going? What separates all of us from those who give in, give up and go home? The arts, definitely the arts.
We don’t define what art is, and don’t think you should either. Maybe the art of cooking is where you can express yourself, or the art of styling your child’s hair or decorating a room. You might lose yourself at a museum or a concert or even a movie, appreciating the art created by someone else. Doesn’t matter.
Whether you whittle or knit, write limericks or stories, it does not matter. That you enjoy it, that you step away from your “normal” day for a few minutes…that’s what makes the difference.
(We’re big fans of Kurt Vonnegut, always have been, and are very grateful to him for his words. They are art to us.)
