Our summer is off and running in terms of sizzle. The “Harlem Book Fair” is on tap for next weekend, providing us with another opportunity to hear from writers, poets, and lovers of literature, who savor the written word.
We have all heard how cathartic writing can be and the same holds true for other forms of artistic expression. Clearly, “A-R-T” is required to spell “H-E-A-R-T.” When we provide our hearts with the sufficient time to express artistically, the yin/yang balance is restored. Many of us are driven to the point where we are burnt out or on the verge of doing so. While our bodies demand more & love and attention, our actions demonstrate that societal expectations rank higher in order of importance. Stifling our desire to express artistically creates a climate for inner dis-cord and dis-ease, if left unchecked.
Do you remember how practicing your art fed the rest of your life? Let’s give more credence to what our bodies are calling for. Hence, cooking counts; dancing counts; singing counts; sewing counts, performing counts; drumming counts; drawing counts; journaling counts; WE COUNT. Let’s do the thing that makes our hearts sing and watch the clouds make room for the sunshine!
