Going with the flow

Our very best ‘art’ whether that’s painting, singing, writing, dancing, running or any other form of our most creative self comes when we are in a state of flow. Where we have let go of the thoughts that restrict us.

Where soul, body and mind are aligned, where the thinking brain is silent, where we are totally conscious in this moment, where we just have the joy of creating right now.

Of course, we can choose to have this flow whenever we want. We just need to let go and go with it.

A world without art

Take away colour, paintings, drawings, photos, books, poems, songs, music, plays, ballet, films, TV, sculptures, fashion, design…take away anything arty/creative. Just stop and think about that.

Now imagine your world without art…imagine a science lab.

For those who think art doesn’t matter, try that world.

As Oscar Wilde said ‘all art is useless’. It’s the use-less things in life that bring the magic not spoon or a screwdriver or maths equation. I don’t love utilitarian things.

Art is life, it is an expression of the human soul.
