It’s Monday – time to take a moment to prepare for the week ahead. And what a week it will be if you are creating the future of your community!
Before we can head out and kick butt this week, though, we need to take a deep breath and just stop. Stop and take notice. Stop and prepare. Stop and smell the flowers. Or perhaps just stop!
If ever you doubt the power we have individually and collectively, Improv Everywhere will remind you that we do indeed have such power.
And if there was ever a doubt that the arts are simply the expression of the human spirit, just watch the effect of seeing musical theater in a mall Food Court. Or the reaction to a public display in a store window. Or yes, watch as the entirety of Grand Central Station erupts in applause.
We humans need to express who we are, and we need to share that. That is what the arts are all about. The arts heal us. They make us whole.
Tell that to the next person who thinks funding for the arts is a “luxury!”
Thanks to Elizabeth Sadlon for sending this video, so we can all start the week with such fun. I hope you will all head out today and thank an artist for making life more livable.
Have a great Monday and a great week, all!
