Thank you. ( I have to admit “any more less important” makes me smile…just the wording, I can’t help myself. )
Someone else mentioned how art separates us from other animals. I really like this. I mean, just like human touch and love is necessary to a baby for survival…
( nearly as vital for sustaining life as food, rest and water http://www.livestrong.com/article/72120-effect-human-contact-newborn-babies/ http://www.nytimes.com/1988/02/02/science/the-experience-of-touch-research-points-to-a-critical-role.html   )
…art gives our daily lives reason to go through the necessary motions for survival.
Art gives survival meaning
Artists are contributors
Sometimes, I really wish I had motivation to be like a doctor or a scientist. While i do find the body and how it works to be very interesting, I don’t see myself sacrificing my life to lets say zoning in on alztimers disease to find out why it destroys the brain and how to stop it.
I don’t have an instilled passion for this.
Something in me deep down is an artist and always will be
and I am and will never be satisfied unless I am creating.
Frivolous but beautiful art is what I have mainly created so far.
Something in me is a little guilty that I am not contributing to society
something in me wants to
I am very interested in learning and sharing information
so maybe I can contribute by sharing a study in an interesting, engaging, and tangible way
and maybe someone will read something i’ve written or watch a documentary I make and it will make them engrossed enough that they will become a researcher or doctor or scientist.
I hope so.
I hope I can inspire others to action.
I’d at least feel that I’ve contributed something.
