I was in Barnes & Noble the other evening and I saw this piece of artwork. I instantly loved it. About 5 minutes later, I took it to the cash register and purchased it. It's now in my office.
There are certain times in life when I see something and I am instantly in love. It could be a pair of shoes, a piece of dessert, or a quality in a person. It happens just enough to keep life exciting... and when it does, I almost always take some sort of action. Whether I buy it, eat it, or become inspired by it, something happens. Sometimes, I can't buy it or eat it, but I can always choose to be inspired. That has no price tag. In fact, I am at my best creatively when there is some sort of meaning to my madness, and often that comes in the way of enlightenment from others or life in general.
I agree with Andy Warhol. I think everybody should like everybody. It is not that everyone has to be best friends, or even friends at all. But it is of my belief that within every individual lies authenticity and potential, and we do a good thing when we see that instead of the negative. You may ask, how can we like those who seem plain evil? To which I respond, hate the sin, not the sinner. It is our hearts of love and our spirits of true joy that may speak God's Truth.
Love you all.
