“Artists are the ones who know only too well that their feeling of freedom, finesse and authority, of creation, formation, and control only reaches its apex when they have stopped doing anything voluntarily” – Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
You can blindfold me, spin me around and drop me off at any location in the world but some part of me will instinctually recognize my beloved Erato while in mime. Thank you, Vanessa, for honoring the Muses and embodying their life force. Such love eclipses my sense of alienation and opens my veins with rejuvenating resplendence and appreciation for the necessity of free spirits.
The apex and role of an artist is to bring beauty, harmony & splendour
Into the mundane world through the vivifying qualities of the Muses.
The medium by which the forces of heaven become manifest in art,
To rekindle the fire of imagination & realize the whole through the part.
Just as the universal soul animates the cosmos with pure radiant light,
So do we find our unique purpose in the abject things of night.
Before stretching the bow of participation, envision the goal in mind,
The object of life attained through rest, before the arrow is aligned.
Recollect your self by turning within to discover your kindred star,
Thus rise above your worldly conditions to know who you truly are.
For wisdom is the integrity of mind that directs and permeates all things;
So dare with all your heart to strengthen your dormant wings.
The attached video displays the embodiment of art & beauty with invigorating ease. Watch closely to see how the artist taps into the ‘rest’ of Heraclitus; that calm, composed and collected state of mind in which the cosmos reveals its pure radiant light by which we acquire an eye for intuitive insight.
