Bless the Beauty

Bless those who bring beauty to the world, who bring light, who bring laughter.  Bless those who see beyond the daily, the tolls, the taxes.  Bless those that make us ponder, smile, pause, perhaps cry.

Bless the artists.

Bless the music, the paintings, the sculptures, the written word.

Bless the beauty.

It can’t all be about survival.

What is survival without joy and where is joy without art?

For my 22nd -26th Days of Giving, I chose to support the Arts by supporting the following organizations: Virginia Community Foundation, The Reif Center, Lyric Center for the Arts, Minnesota Discovery Center and Minnesota Public Radio.

An upsetting number of people enjoy disparaging Northern Minnesota by saying that we don’t have any culture up here.

Bah humbug.

Open your eyes.  Open their eyes.
