"I believe in Christianity
as I believe that the sun has risen:
not only because I see it,
but because by it I see everything else."

art appreciation...

me at the gallery
photo by Chris Doyle

My son, Chris, was not able
to attend the opening reception
at the “Art and Science of Color” exhibit
at the Whitaker Center in Harrisburg, PA.
At his request, we went to see the exhibit
a couple of days ago.
This is a photo he took of me
with my two photographs there.

It is a totally different experience
seeing any art first hand
rather than online or in a book
It is the only way to
fully appreciate it...
the only way to really experience it.

"My people have a law never
to speak of sizes or numbers to you...
It makes you do reverence to nothings
and pass by what is really great."

even though they've been disappointed,

even though they've been betrayed,
to those who still love
even though they've been hurt before."

artful living...

artful living

"Actually, art encompasses the wholeness of life
and once the photographer realizes
how much of artful living is living art,
the whole poignancy of the drama
fills him with an immediate sense of gratitude,
a sense of thankfulness and a sense of constant prayer
for the little and the great,
the ordinary and the extraordinary,
of what Life offers."

- Simhananda
