Ours is a ruined world, a world torn apart by the greed of man, by his lust for money, for pleasure, for power. We have destroyed the world with our way of life, and now as I look around and see sorrow, pain, hurt, despair, I realize that just how many things around me cause beauty and love to be somehow completely lost. The scars sometimes tend to hide that beauty that was once plentiful.
And yet, despite all this, I can still see a light, a hope, a never-ending love. Even with all the scars, there is beauty, we just have to dig it out.
C.S.Lewis once said “Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art…. It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival.”
In many ways I agree with Lewis on this. We can survive without art, without friendship, but what is the point of surviving if there is no meaning?
As an art student and aspiring writer, I have made it my life goal to find that beauty and bring it back. It is my desire and determination to do my part to make our world beautiful again.
This is my little corner where I share my dreams and my efforts to make the world a better place. I hope whoever will stumble across this blog with discover something for themselves, and what is more important, that they will find a desire to do their part to make our world beautiful.
As George Eliot so wisely said, it will never rain roses, when we want more roses, we must plant more roses.
If we want beauty, if we want love, we’ve got to work and make it happen. That is what my life is all about, and that is what I am dedicating this blog too. If you have time, feel free to check it out 🙂
