Perhaps art is a place where reality and fantasy come together?
Hello! Out of all the greetings in the world the simple “hello,” “hola,” or “Anata ni aete suteki,” (lovely to meet you) is by far one of the most useless openers to many of our conversations. As a shy, awkward, and sometimes socially unacceptable character, I must admit to having some difficulty trying to get past the initial greeting. “Hi” grabs someone’s attention, but how do you hold onto it, is there a better way? Pass the ball. Or something like that as the self-help books advise. I do, I really do try to pass that ball but it’s either moving too fast or I hold onto it too hard and it deflates depressingly in my hands the moment I catch it. So I propose another route. Instead of saying hello or good morning in these daily posts, I’ll ask a question. Life is short; in order to make some changes within the current developing modern mindset sometimes formalities, especially where formalities are unecessary, can be foregone. To this I say my first and final greeting hesitantly but, with ultimate confidence. Hello everyone.
Question: Does anyone know why art can be so meaningful?
P.s. I’m an art nerd 🙂
