I would like to share a quote from Fritz Scholder, an artist whose work has been exhibited at the Institute of American Indian Arts Museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico. His words captured my attention, especially at this time of year when we’re all caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holidays. My hope is that this message will be inspirational to everyone .
Spend time patting a dog or cat. Look up and down. Believe in the unknown, for it is there. Live in many places. Live with flowers and music and books and paintings and sculpture. Keep a record of your time. Learn to write well. Learn to read well. Learn to listen and talk well. Know your country, know the world, know your history, know yourself. Take care of yourself physically and mentally. Be good to yourself. You owe it to yourself. Be good to those around you. And do all of these things with passion. FRITZ SCHOLDER, MAY 12, 1983
For me it is a learning process. Something I will continue to work on for the rest of my life.
Dan and I wish all of you a very happy and blessed holiday season and a healthy 2014.
