Living is the Art

Living is the art. It’s how one lives. It’s why one lives.

Loving is art. Eating is art. Cooking is art. Enjoying life is art. Drinking whiskey is art (and drinking a fine whiskey is high art.) Having a special moment is art. Listening to a good story, watching a TV drama, taking a crap,falling asleep - all art.

Despising life is art as well. It is surviving the struggles. It’s suffering the humiliations. It’s trying and failing repeatedly, but doing so artistically. Sometimes failing is succeeding....(e.g., Pollock, Van Gogh, Jimi Hendrix, and so on.)
