7. Art and Morality

The Artist’s Eye

 

Look around. What do you see? Look for instances – snapshots – of life that arouse feelings of love, sympathy, joy, sadness or wonder. These are the very subjects that the artist is drawn to capture on his canvas. As if windows on the soul, poetry, song, dance, and fine art lead us to sense greater things. They soften the conscience and remind us that meaning is yet beyond our mostly cerebral, task-driven perspective; they reveal the nature of beauty as a connecting force.

This weekend, listen to great music, read a story or a poem, or simply look out on to the world with the artist’s eye.
