Art can't fill you when you're hungry. .
It can't pay your bills. Unlike vinegar, or plastic straws, there aren't 100 life hacks for art.
It can't take away your pain. It can't hold your hand. It can't save you.
But.... art is a gift. It can tell you your story so that you see it in a new way. Art can sing you your song. In a flash it can turn a teardrop into a fleeting diamond.
It can take an ordinary moment and touch it with beauty. It can take you on adventures when you can't leave home. It can make you feel your humanity.
Art can give you permission to let out the breath you have been holding. Because you may feel alone, but you are not alone.
