In this time of uncertainty and division, beauty is the elixir, and support, the anchor. This path of ours is not singular, it’s woven in many directions with other’s layered within.
Though the future is always uncertain, how we live today dents the vessel of tomorrow, slowly forming what is to become.
It is my belief and current challenge, that each of us have the ability to affect the future by how we live today, supporting ourselves as we support others. This is my constant rumination, how can I affect my future while affecting and engaging in the lives of others.
It is here that I have planted myself, in the middle of support and supported: a circular motion of doing, living and inspiration. Design, art, words and architecture. Under this umbrella is where I feel most affective, where the creative mind and action come into play.
Politics aside, though never too far, I feel the necessity to put my own mark onto the surface of life, into how we live and the future I will never see.
Through support and inspiration, the future is malleable: affected by the actions of mind and hand. This is how the architecture of time works, many hands, one day at a time.
There are many organizations and individuals who have the same belief, that in order to affect the future started yesterday, but today is always a good second choice, starting wherever we are. To live better is to do better, has become my mantra, going beyond how I speak, into what I do.
The work of many makers have the intrinsic value to inspire by proxy, by the inspiration of beauty: visual and physical engagement. This is how we enjoy life, how we fill it with meaning and find our own purpose.
Through the endeavors of others, life expands, affecting how we live our lives and view the future.
Engagement and support are the truest efforts in building an inspired life, whether its voting or purchasing work by local makers. A better future evolves from expansive circles of inclusion and support: inspiration, action and hope.
