Today’s a Good Day for Art


By some kind synchronicity, I started my work day today by running across three (so far) astounding works of art.

All this Twitter account does is tweet art, and today they shared this:


Ron Hicks is a contemporary master.

Next, I went to Facebook, where my friend MJ shared this Rilke quote with this painting by Spanish artist Luis Ricardo Falero.

“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are only princesses who are waiting to see us act just once with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything terrible is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that needs our love.” — Rainer Maria Rilke


And then, knowing me possibly too well, YouTube suggested I listen to “In the Mood for Love” by Shigeru Umebayashi.

This is an hour-long loop that will fuel the next 60 minutes of my creative efforts. Unless I right-click the player and choose “Loop,” in which case this will enchant my ears until perhaps 5:00.
