Life does tend to imitate art Rodin’s “Thinker” inspirational

 

Art is contemplation. It is the pleasure of the mind which searches into nature and which there divines the spirit of which nature herself is animated.”  —  Auguste Rodin

The Thinker (French: Le Penseur) is a bronze sculpture by Auguste Rodin, usually placed on a stone pedestal. The work (top right insert) shows a nude male figure of over life-size sitting on a rock with his chin resting on one hand as though deep in thought, and is often used as an image to represent philosophy.

Artists have always tried to capture the essences of reality. Painters, poets, writers and photographers with their highly developed sense of observation capture the things we do everyday using the tools and the media available to them at the times they lived.

Recording for posterity the things they have observed in their own time in human history captures forever the faces, forces, feelings and emotions that mankind has experienced throughout the world’s existence.

Their works offer us both a  proof that others have felt the same way we currently do and a positive  affirmation that throughout the changing face of time we are all united by our humanity and compassion.

Quote of the week: “What is true is already so. Owning up to it doesn't make it worse. Not being open about it doesn't make it go away. And because it's true, it is what is there to be interacted with. Anything untrue isn't there to be lived. People can stand what is true, for they are already enduring it.” ― Eugene T. Gendlin, Focusing
