Art and Meaning
This is a sentiment that, with some variation, I tell myself every time I relax:
I want to write about the light casting shadows on my walls,
I want to make myself cry at the profoundness of the clouds floating by,
I want to engage with the making and interpretation of meaning,
To draw connections, so that in pretending to understand anything,
Something can be preserved and therefore re-created.
Of course preservation is more about "re-imagining" an idea or object than keeping the idea of that thing static... as that would be impossible.
There are so many interesting things to re-imagine, and, as a result, co-create.
Art is our most beautiful and precious tool of creation.
