Is beauty in the eye of the beholder?
My answer to that question has become one of the most commented-on parts of Life After Art. So many people who read the book want to talk about how I dismantle that oft-repeated phrase.
I believe beauty is everywhere. It’s not up to us to decide that beauty is here or it is there. Beauty just is, and we are lucky if we have eyes to see.
So, what is keeping you from seeing the beauty around you?
Some of us are focused on some big problems today. Or our hearts or spirits are broken.
But others among us have just closed our eyes. It’s easy for us to delight in being negative. It’s seems more important to complain, to find fault, to criticize. I’ve spent years like that. And I caution you: your eyes will become calloused until you can only see what you are looking for.
Get your vision checked. Beauty is everywhere.
