Note to Self–And Anyone Else

November 14, 2017

Write, even when you don’t feel profound; paint, even when you don’t feel artistic; take pictures when you need to practice seeing through another lens; read to hear voices that speak wisdom or joy or humor or humanity into your soul; dance, even if no one else joins in; sing at the top of your lungs, even when no one else knows your song. Forgive yourself if you don’t feel perfect at any of these things, because every small offering of art offered in love–whatever form, whatever shape, adds beauty to the world. And friend, we need to continue to add beauty to the world, to let it grow and rise up against the ugliness that threatens to continue to speak darkness and bleakness into the individual and collective soul.
