My daily aphorisms. Reflections on life, death, beauty, change, love, happiness, etc., written in a poetic and whimsical style.
So very true. As i am an artist and so are you, both in the art of writing. If no one appreciates our work, then it will never be heard of.
Indeed it does. If the things we create is not appreciated then we would not be going what we are doing. As example people enjoy hearing me ramble about my day or topics I talk about. In fact I would be burnt out a month ago without the encouragement of my viewers.
If you appreciate what you have, you will never miss it when it's gone.
Agreed. The things I appreciate, I hold onto, whether physically or in memory.
This one is so true! That's the power of love :)
Pleased to see another post about your aphorisms on old James Geary's aphorism blog in Britain. Apparently you're reintroduced with some characteristically poignant, Zen-inflected aphorisms no one else has seen before.Jack, an aphorism-interested individual.
Very true. I also think it's cyclical in that we learn to appreciate through art.
Good one, kind of falls in line with my view on the law of attraction. "what you appreciate, you attract".Good one, kind of falls in line with my view on the law of attraction. "what you appreciate, you attract".
They thrive with appreciation but can survive without it. Sadly, many master works sit locked up in vaults of private collections.
That is so true,nothing else can motivate an artist more.
You are a work of art, Marty, and we all appreciate you sooooo much!!
Yes! marty, you are an aphoristic treasure, but I think it's a bit too far to call you a piece of work -- that's going too far by half!
this one appealed to be becuz im an artist, LOL! I think art survives because the artist and the admirers of art equally appreciate it. Thanks for sharing! :)
So true, and artists survive through (price) appreciation of their articles.
That's so, so true, but then, isn't art iself a bit silly at heart? But what would we artistic types do without something like to to do to pass the time? Twiddle our thingers?Apprecianado Jones.
A beautiful remark. I can only add that:Appreciation is only as timeless as the host.
My world is surrounded in art, from the patterns on my curtains,my couch and my bathroom towel,to the carvings and paintings on my wall, it is everywhere, whether I consciously think to about it or not, it makes my life better. Sometimes your aphorisms come back to me throughout the day, and it helps me appreciate my life a bit more also. Art defiantly lasts beyond appreciation.
Art does remain relevant by the power of mass appreciation, but I do believe that it stays well beyond that too. :)
I think, as humans, we all are wired inherently to create. You could say that all creation is art. So, as long as humans exist, art will exist, and those who appreciate it, if only the artist.But more artists would be appreciated if their art reached more people--with $, no?. (Sorry to be so pedestrian. ;0)
Works of art must be kept in pristine shape, if they are true works of art. Retouching, re-framing, cleaning, preservation, publishing, etc., all works of art share this common rejuvenation through the ages. Each culture preserves its ideas of art and its meaning.
