“In the Calm of the Afternoon”  |  Anthony Satori

“That is part of the beauty of all literature.  You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you’re not lonely and isolated from anyone.  You belong.”

— F. Scott Fitzgerald

I believe that Fitzgerald got this exactly right.  Literature has the ability to connect us — in an almost mystical way — with the universal elements of the human experience.  This applies not only to literature, of course, but to all art — music, dance, painting, photography, film, poetry, etc.   Every time an artist creates a genuine expression of their inner spirit, it has the potential to bring humanity closer together, and to draw us further toward a place of true connection and harmony.BlogImage-footd
