"I had an experience this week in which a prominent person directed his audience to “Stop, Look, and Listen”. He expressed the fact that when they do this one should have some understanding of the meaning of the words together. He pointed out that “Stop” not only meant to come to a halt, but that it meant to get rid of everything that was disabling your ability to concentrate. Anything that was disrupting your pure focus was to be abandoned. He went on to say that looking was not just having your eyes fixed on one specific location or target area. It was an act that is meant to fill your eyes with the completeness of all things going on around you at that very moment, seen and unseen. Not only was one to look side to side and up and down but one was to use every part of his being to view mannerisms, gestures, background movements, comfort and discomfort as well as eye and facial reactions to the things that were said and not said. Not stopping there, he carefully pointed out that if one really listened that they could hear more than words, more than sounds and then silence.
In doing this a persona would be better equipped to make judgments, have a clearer understanding, and perceive beyond normal circumstances.
I of course couldn’t help but think how applicable this was to our whole society and how we should take a few precious moments and engage with beautiful paintings that capture the heart’s emotions. Not only would we live and feel better but we would live in a better place and in more harmony with our fellow human beings as well."
“Midst the hustle, bustle, rush, road, and ride
I stopped to think in whom I do confide
Who care about more than a living soul
Who stand and self proclaim about their toils
Where have we gone; where have we been
Down the road and back; and the time is when?”
“Paintings only talk when you are prepared to look and listen. Have a great week!”
"Find my paintings, or may my paint-tings find you!"
