Life is art. It sure is.
Love this. For more than 1 reason.
As someone who has no artistic skills, whatsoever, and treats code as art (perhaps, because of the former!), it gives me a lot of comfort, and confidence to read this.
I can now emphatically say that I am an artist too.
Life is surely art. And one way to respect art is to give it all the attention you’ve got. As someone who tries to make it every year to the Reston Arts Festival, and spends a decent amount of time talking to the artists (if you know me, you know I am not a man of few words), I can say with certainty that each and every one of them actually loves what they do. Truly so.
Be it creating art from Bitter Gourd, or desks from logs of specific sizes found at certain times of the year in the Boston Area, or cute little wooden boxes with “secret” drawers — each of them were unique. All of them were lovely. And one day, when I can afford it (I’ve always appreciated them so that’s not a problem), I will surely buy quite a few of those. And one may have to say that going by Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, Art perhaps comes at the very top (for a lot of us).
Life is art. And if you adore everything you do, do not compromise on delivering your best regardless of what you do, draw inspiration both from people you know and those you don’t, refrain from feeling envious about anyone or anything, and do your very best to enjoy every moment of it, you will surely have treated it with respect. You will surely have treated it like art.
