Altar L

So excited about the launch of my website!  I can’t believe this is finally coming into fruition!  As I sit here with the common cold, ever so common I am, I feel a bit of joy rippling across the main page of my spirit or life with this experience!  Winter bearings bring abundance, and I look forward to its production being furthered then! I think it’s amazing when simple things cause joy and generally good feelings.  We have been so lost in this age of technology, everything within the American mandate to have! Well, a lot of us want to give, and that’s always refreshing!  In the entanglement of jealousy and envy, weaves a web of superficial success and loss.  I want to span out, even if unsuccessfully, and document this web I weave, ever so delicate.  Going back to the simple need of human kind, I excitedly explore purpose, passion, and pleasantries.  If only for tomorrow, then so be it but for today I will dance bare backed on a horse through the wild, winded night! Hm, and that would be interesting to dissect “what is success”! Until next time then 🙂

Life Art

“The Aesthetic Movement argued that art was not supposed to be utilitarian or useful in any practical sense. Instead, aesthetic experience is a fully autonomous and independent aspect of a human life. Thus, art should exist solely for its own sake” This was back post impressionism, pre-realism in thought.

Now after early 2000 revisit of traditional, simplistic art forms such as aesthetic for a

esthetics sake, “The aesthetic movement prompted Americans to make the mental leap that beautiful surroundings, in and of themselves, would elevate the soul. This, women, who shouldered primary responsibility for domestic life, enlisted aesthetic forces as they shaped their houses, thereby shaping their families and the entire society. Creating a beautiful home was a moral act. (Bonding with a type of utilitarianism) aesthetic came to symbolize connections between the sun, fire, and warmth – both physical and metaphorical”
– Karen Zukowski, “The Artistic Hearth: The Fireplace in the American Aesthetic Movement,” March 2008 issue of The Magazine AntiquesBeauty for beauty sake, in vain, has moved to collective consciousness creating and responding. Calls of the internal designs to express practical, functional art that transcend just looking pretty are being answered creatively. We find connections, actions, and depth in spirit, expression and other art forms like literature. Gone are the days of limiting, pretty art and welcomed are the bonding of humans, in love, through holistic needs calling for a response and answered through creativity and art for art! We are ALL art.
I’m thinking the age of technology brought us an overwhelming amount of artistic information that we couldn’t quite sift through, so instead we bonded together based on need and responded.  We don’t really NEED Shakespeare, nor do you have to be like him to be a writer!  What an interesting era full of appreciation for the working woman and man and earth!
