Life

Living with talent

Klio Panourgias, Greece

"If living is an art it is a strange one, an art of everything, and particularly of spirited pleasure. Its developed form would involve a number of qualities sewn together: intelligence, charm, good fortune, unforced virtue, along with wisdom, taste, knowledge, understanding, and the recognition of anguish and conflict as part of life. Wealth wouldn't be essential, but the intelligence to accumulate it where necessary might be. The people I can think of who live with talent are the ones who have free lives, conceiving of great schemes and seeing them fulfilled.

Everybody is right

I have one major rule: everybody is right. More specifically, everybody, including me, has some important pieces of the truth, and all of these pieces have to be honored, cherished, and included in a more gracious, spacious, and compassionate embrace.

Your thoughts on: Life

Tina Hansen, Denmark: I created this painting, 'Alchemy Road', based on what I learned from a very lovely internet pal of mine. She introduced me to the alchemical 'thought' of how to see human development. So the 'person' became secondary and the symbols became the primary substance in the painting. Many people can recognize the seven chakra colors, and they were my biggest challenge, so 'Alchemy' became a stepping stone! Which is really what Alchemy is all about.
