Changing Perspectives

I was reading Deborah Barlow's blog yesterday [Slow Muse, link here] and she had a couple of quotes by the wonderful Jane Hirschfield, found in Psychology Today. Thanks Deborah for these quotes, they really spoke to me.

"What we want from art is whatever is missing from the lives we are already living and making. Something is always missing, and so art-making is endless."

"I suppose I’m saying that good art is a truing of vision, in the way that a saw is trued in the saw shop, to cut more cleanly. And that anything that lessens our astigmatisms of being or makes more magnificent the eye, ear, tongue, and heart cannot help but help a person better meet the larger decisions that we, as individuals and in aggregate, ponder."

    1. Thanks Brandt, I'm really enjoying what's happening with these.

  2. Those two quotes, especially the first one, just blow the mind. And your work, as always is beautiful. What a feast for eyes and brain - thank you!

  3. Charlton you might enjoy "Nine Gates" by Jane Hirshfield, she is a beautiful writer. And, as always thank you for your lovely comment.
