Politicians give us pause. Artists give us reasons to live.
by Bob Schwartz
Politicians and others in our worlds, public and private, do some good things. Politicians and others in our worlds, public and private, do some not so good or bad things. As much as they make our lives better, they are known to make our lives at various times worse.
Let us appreciate artists, who are trying, sometimes subtly, sometimes wildly, to make things that do make our lives a little better, or a lot better. When we are put upon or put down, they give us reasons to live. Also, do not forget that the people who love us are artists too. We are their art. And they are ours.
