APPRECIATION OF LIFE
"The bottom line of spirituality in art to me is appreciation of life," wrote Laguna Woods based Sally Johnson, poet, artist and a university staff member. "Art and spirituality aspire to more than the usual known reality. This may mean burrowing the depths of the ordinary, clawing out of the mundane cocoon. Instead of seeking 'A Life Less Ordinary,' art can reveal a single moment manifest, resulting in the profundity of a daily experience.
"The 'now' becomes calmly good enough," Sally added, "and larger than the life we limit. Once you have pressed the reveal button, the fractals of creativity dance openly and repeat patterns from the largest to the smallest and back again, yet neither explode nor implode."
