Life is pure adventure, and the sooner we realize that, the quicker we will be able to treat life as art.

Awakening the Artist Within

The artist‘s role in the transformation of human social and cultural sphere’s cannot be under-emphasized. It is the artist who recognizes and communicates both how things are and how they could be. This artist is not a small group of talented geniuses somewhere ‘out there.’ The potential for powerful creativity and expression lies within each of us.

As our skills develop and we master our chosen crafts, our innate artistry expresses itself more frequently and effectively. Like the bird who was born to sing, the rose bud destined to flower, we were each born with the potential to assist in the creative transformation and healing of our world.

A poem by Maya Angelou

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
‘Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
