The Artist Soul

Artistic expression in its many forms, be it the painter, the writer and so on to the musician, the actor is an undertaking of reverence toward the soulfulness of human creativity. We create to satisfy a need to explain life and all its wonders to ourselves. And self-expression on the road to creativity is one avenue in which to tell our story of things hidden in broad daylight which will simultaneously expand and unlock its secrets to the advantage of self-knowledge and wisdom.

Indeed this taproot of creativeness can be sublime, hidden within from the masses to bathe in its own truths until one day an epiphany of ideas rush forth and for one brief moment, all seems to make sense in the universe. and as soon as it arrives it dissipates until the next flicker of lucidity.

I often wonder how Vincent felt when the epiphany arrived and it was soon followed by despair and caught up in a free fall of depression.

  1. I sometimes think it is divine truth trying to break in, and nobody is watching or listening, it can be a very deaf and blind world at times…a very sad day for Vincent, but I’m sure it is seen from eternal realms…

    1. I agree, it is like the reply above… amazing, mysterious and fragile, but yet we can see it and feel it and know it from our corner of this small planet… mind blowing… and yes it can be like one is the only one listening…jc

  2. So inspiring to read your pages again. Love this line “And self-expression on the road to creativity is one avenue in which to tell our story of things hidden in broad daylight…” How I marvel at your unceasing ability to do just that.
