“Without art, the crudeness of reality would make the world unbearable.” ~George Bernard
One of the phases we traverse in the mindfulness creative program called Finding Uber Bliss is to see things differently; it's called Head Tilt.
I love how this painting humorously captures a tilt. Humor is a necessary medicine for me. It helped me survive a difficult childhood - it gives me the relief I need when I see the news, and shows me absurdity in a way that liberates my disillusions.
This concept may pertain to our politics now, but if you're not in that place, it can be directed to any aspect of life's challenging kicks in the ass. Here's to a tilt that might help you.
For me, creativity is not only the process of writing and making art. It's resilience, freedom, and empowerment. It's fuel to our spirit and sustenance to our soul. Art and freely expression continues to be vital to our sanity.
