“Consider a desert, barren and empty,then rain comes and then the water
gives existence to the once lifeless plain, and, oh, what life can come from the sky above.
Just as the rain gives life to the desert, we can give life to existence, and from existence the journey of meaning can be travelled; the journey we can measure, should we choose, through the record of internal dialogue via Art.
The reflection of the joy, the sorrow, despair, anger, hate, fear, love, stillness, can be captured in a moment by the contact of brush on canvas.
We can embark on a truly amazing voyage of self discovery, being a love affair within.”
(Art and Mind 2001 quoted in Holt,J. 2005 Creativity as the Immune System of the Mind and the Source of the Mythic.)
