resonating with the universe

A lifetime may not be long enough to attune ourselves fully to the harmony of the universe. But just to become aware that we can resonate with it - that alone can be like waking up from a dream.

When you start to think of the arts as not this thing that is going to get you somewhere in terms of becoming an artist or becoming famous or whatever it is that people do, but rather a way of making being in the world not just bearable, but fascinating, then it starts to get interesting again.

This blog, very often, is a place to save things that I want to look at or think about later. So it is this evening - the Lynda Barry quotation, about finding the world fascinating. And then thinking about resonating with the harmony of the universe. Yes.
