You’re an artist!

You’re an artist!

You’re an artist!

Yes you are. If you have two eyes, two ears and one mouth. Then you’re an artist. If you can see with your closed eyes, listen to the sound of silence and speak to yourself – you’re an artist!

It’s true. You don’t have to be special to be an artist. You’re special because you’re a born artist. You just have to take special care of who you are, where you are and what you have.

That reminds me of an incident once I heard from an old friend. He used to have a small workplace where he spent 12 years of his life, every day 10 am to 6pm. Then one day, he was visited by a veteran artist. He was sitting face-to-face when the artist said, “you have such a lovely workplace”. Amazement spread on my friend’s face. And the artist continued: “look at the lazy afternoon sunrays leaning on your desk….sound of the wood-pecker, it must be somewhere nearby….and smell of your Darjeeling tea is melting in the air. You’re so lucky!” My friend was speechless.

Yes, most of us are like my friend. We wake up everyday expecting to see the same. So here’s your time to see the difference. Just close your eyes and start seeing….
