Finding Art Everywhere

By: Sarah

"I was born with glass bones and paper skin. Every morning I break my legs, and every afternoon I break my arms. At night, I lie awake in agony until my heart attacks put me to sleep."


Would you believe me if I told you this quote, one of my favorite quotes - so poetic and heartbreaking - is from an episode of Spongebob Squarepants? Because it totally is.

Who would have thought the writers of this show were so deep? So artistic?

I think, if we look for it, we can find art in everything. I've been thinking about this a lot lately. And this post might not make sense and is going to be stream-of-consciousness, but just go with it.

With every book I read, I find art in the sentences - the words carefully strung together to create a masterpiece. With each film I watch and each television show, I consciously categorize each cinematic moment in my brain, storing them away to remember later.

Like this scene from The Tree of Life. So powerful:

I find art in music, oh do I find art in music. I was listening to the band Alt-J on vinyl a few days ago and had this intense out-of-body experience. My own personal nirvana. The music was so beautiful, so artistic, it made me want to cry - with joy, with exhaustion, with everything building up inside of me. What a remarkable thing for music to be able to do.

I find art in simple things, too. Like a latte I make.

Or a wall I happen to walk by.

I guess all that's left is to continue to find the art in myself.

Oh, hello!
