Art is another word for life

And life is infinite beyond definition
Beyond understanding even
Nothing said can contain but a drop of it
Art encompasses all aspects of existence
Life and truth and consciousness and color
And sound and feeling
All are the same thing
Seeing we call it painting
Hearing we call it music
Reading we call it poetry
And living we call it life
So art is an attempt to capture life
To crystallize and make permanent that which
Is forever fleeting and changing
To pick one detail out of the infinitude of infinites
And make it clear
To see a light
A though
An idea
A wondering
And share it with other people
To delve into the mysteries of nature and God
