Feeding the source...


I love art of all kinds, and I am a big believer in that art really and truly feeds the soul. It doesn't matter to me, if it is even the same kind of art that I do, as long as it is creative and thoughtful and done with passion, it will manage to inspire me in my writing. Last night I went to see my friend Beau's first group art show/happening. The event was called Medium, the perfect name, because it showcased all mediums of art. There were several DJ's spinning, a bunch of different artists showing paintings, installation art, photography and a dance group that performed amongst the crowd. It was such a breath of fresh air and the proceeds went to a dance company that does dance for social change. The crowd was enthusiastic and curious and the artists talked to everyone who admired their work, and even though I was dead on my feet tired, I found myself grooving to the music and soaking up the scene. It would have been so easy to just have stayed at home and skipped the trip downtown, but I am so glad I didn't. And today the writing seems, just a little bit easier.
