A Valentine for the Artists Among Us

Go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something. —Kurt Vonnegut

This quote comes courtesy of good friend John Graham and it’s my valentine to all of my friends, who are artists in their own way. You make the world a better place.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
