Art - Unleashes Our Creativity and Tames the Savage Beast Within



We are all weary from the Challenges of the Day - Personal and those tenuous, tedious ones of our government, the debt ceiling, out of control spending, more pork to get to an agreement to end the shutdown. Let's put it all aside for the weekend and do something to invigorate our spirits! Let's enjoy ART!

It is best to go in person to a local Museum, Art Fesitval or Artist's Show/Gallery. But if that is not possible, spending even a few minutes perusing Art online can relax, refresh and re-energize you.

From the Magic Land of Twitter, we have found and love the passionate art by Sophia. This is one of her newest paintings:

Why there is time? well of course because you measure it. If you didn’t measure it there wouldn’t be any time.
The Universe started with a bang. What kind of bang? An Impossibly big bang. A bang big enough to jump-start time…
