THE AMERICAN WAY
While I was fixing my coffee this morning my attention was caught by my coffee creamer; the packaging, the seal, the functionality and the product itself, very creative for an off the shelf, supermarket product. It made me think of the classic ’57 Chevy and a huge number of products over the years that Art has been such a big part of their success. All this made me think of what I’ve learned about Art and creativity over the years and their major role in a healthy, developing culture———-I think Art defines a truth in the soul that words cannot touch.
Art not only helps inspire the realization of our powerful connection to the universal mind, but it is also very utilitarian; there is great beauty in superb function. America has led the world for a long time now in the beauty of function inspired by our great love of freedom. Of course, embracing great Art and artist of all kinds from the past, in the present, and the enthusiastic artists of the future will keep us joined with the other dynamic forces of our universe that are lifting us toward the stars.
If we can pull through our present crisis and avoid a future of America falling into the hands of the unimaginative, dull-witted, lazy dullards we just might have an amazing century ahead of us——— We must not lose our way.
Can I simply say what a comfort to uncover somebody that genuinely understands what they’re discussing on the net. You actually understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more people should read this and understand this side of the story. I can’t believe you’re not more popular given that you surely have the gift.
Thank you, I appreciate your kind words. I have a powerful book on Amazon by the name, I SEE, It is a poetry and poetics book about what I saw after God pulled me from the depths and hell of alcohol and drug addiction; of course, it’s under my name, Jack Shinholser, as the author. Please buy one ($5.99)for the cause and if you like it and are so moved please write a review for me there on the same page where you purchase the book. I would greatly appreciate it —Jack
