Art is what we call… the thing an artist does.   It’s not the medium or the oil or the price or whether it hangs on a wall or you eat it.   What matters, what makes it art, is that the person who made it overcame the resistance, ignored the voice of doubt and made something worth making.   Something risky.   Something human.

If something doesn’t work exactly right, or maybe needs some special treatment, you don’t just throw it away.  Everything can’t be fully operational all the time.  Sometimes, we need to have the patience to give something the little nudge it needs.

Fragments: No Plan
There is no plan for life,
No map for living.
No one can lead you by the hand,
Say for sure where you should turn.
We want to believe
There is a path
That must be chosen wisely,
Though wisdom
Is only something that we learn
From looking back
On our choices.
Most of all we yearn to be happy.
If you do what you feel
Is right
When you feel it
The present comes into focus
And living
Takes care of itself.

[Another poetry site I’ve recently begun to follow.  The “fragments” part refers to the opinion of the author, that the poem is not truly completed, but he wanted to post it to get it out in the universe anyway.  My opinion is some of his “fragments” are better than my “completed” works.    Well, worth checking out!   —    KMAB]

Fragments: Growing
When we are children we dream
Of growing up,
Be an adult doing adult things.
We never understand
That it takes a very long time
To become young.
