No, I'm not in Shangri-La, but am in one of my favorite spots that could pass for that fabled place--Santa Fe, New Mexico. Canyon Road, to be exact, the home of an incredible amount of art and beauty and people who appreciate both. Santa Fe, I am told, is surpassed only by New York city as a center for art in this country. I am always in awe of the ideas I see here and the unique expression of them and how art touches a place in our souls that is untouched by anything else.
We CANNOT let the arts continue to decline in importance in our schools and in this country. Without art, the soul fades for lack of nourishment.
The art does not have to be of this quality, each individual has within them the capacity to create--through words, images, song, clay--whatever medium you choose. Bring it forth, share it or not, but see how your life is enriched...
