The eye of the hurricane

In the eye of the hurricane there is said to be calm. If this is the case than when ever I find myself in the middle of a storm, I would see the things flying all around me, and yet be unaffected by them. Knowing this, will I find myself whirling around with all the debris, like trash in the sea, or will I find the calm in the storm and patiently observe it come and go. If this were the case than I would see the things that are in the storm, and can than properly assess what my course of action might be, rather than be in it, dodging and weaving, and owned by fear. Studies show that if you have a positive outlook that you are able to see things clearer, that the negative is less attracted to you, and that you will be in a calm state. Perhaps that is what art is to me. While I create art I am at peace, even though the world is going on around me, I am at peace.

For may years I feel like I have been an advocate for artists, working hard to get art in peoples view, whether that is on a bus or on a wall, or a canvas. My purpose, to be an ambassador to culture, and warm hearts that have like many of us, faced adversity and serious hardships in their life, and to empower spirit in a world that is not always fair, and not always considerate to ones temple. I often wonder how long I will continue to do the work I do, it has not been an easy ride, even if I make it look easy, and that’s okay, because I know I am in service to humanity, as long as I am in good health and able, I will do my best to carry on. The challenge is to do the good work in a world that chases numbers, or are caught up in the day to day grind, and who love and appreciate art, but find it hard to pay for it because of this or that thing. I guess this has been how its always been, though I could sell my soul, or improve my marketing skills, or hire a middle person, than again I wouldn’t have made some of the art I have. It is not so much about profitability or fame, it is and has always been about the art, from the heart, and perhaps what has been given will come around. Some food for thought as I prepare to move forward into the next.
