The experience of Art

No, this not about age and experience, or the art of experience, rather it is about Art AS an experience.

Art takes life and forces us to re-experience it.  Its the child effect, seeing the world through eyes for which everything is new.  Art lets us experience sights, sounds, and textures in new ways, and that brings everything that has turned common and grey back to fresh and new…

You may think, I don’t get art..that’s fine.  But you’ve seen a child staring at an ant or something common, and you’ve heard the laughter of children.  Its infectious, this love of all that is new.  Now ask yourself: Isn’t that something you want to recapture for yourself?  Nurture the sense of wonder in the world through art.  That is its value to you. If you are going to have the ability to be responsible for your happiness, then the ability to take joy in the simple things in life through a fresh start each day, a view of small things through a child’s eyes, is key to this ability.  Remember to play as hard as you work.  Be as silly as you are serious.  Life is about balance.

I get a new piece of Art in my mailbox nearly daily.  I share this blog now, in case you would like to get a daily dose of Art too.  Some recent posts..

Its hit or miss, but most days the art is a hit.


 

And now we return you to our regularly scheduled BDSM beating and Domination, already in progress.  Hope you enjoyed this brief respite.  Hmmm  OK.. maybe not a respite.. more like an interlude…hmmm sojourn?   Ah hell.. Let the fun continue!

Call out to me in Ecstasy…

Posted first by emdimensional, this speaks to me


Wherever you may lead, Labyrinth..

And you call out in ecstasy
I remember you’re my best friend
I have wandered through the labyrinth
I have found you at the edge of time

And you call out in innocence
To the wild unbroken wind
I have fought to see the face of God
Will you answer in the tongue of Men

Everything you’ve done by now is necessary
Even if you’re torn apart at the seams
Everything you know from here on out is changing
Everything I have is yours, Ecstasy

And you call out in infancy
I have only just awoke
Imprisoned by the medicine
All my chains have been self-imposed
Oh the body aged and bruised
I’m eternal, eternal youth
All I am, I know I learned from Love
In the ambits of the labyrinth

Wherever you may lead, labyrinth
Wherever you may lead, labyrinth
Wherever you may lead, labyrinth
Wherever you may lead, labyrinth

Every turn that you’ve been down, is temporary
Why are you worshipping what could have been
Every word you’ve spoken out has be your story
Even now, you’re the flower and the seed
Everything you’ve done by now is necessary
Even if you’re torn apart at the seams
Everything you know from here on out is changing
Everything I have is yours, Ecstasy
Everything I have is yours, Ecstasy
Even now, you’re the flower and the seed


 

How could I NOT love this?  Awesome stuff..
And now the words to music…  enjoy!
