“Tree in a Field of Yellow Flowers”  |  Anthony Satori

“The temple bell stops, but I still hear the sound coming out of the flowers.”

— Matsuo Basho

Our connection with God does not have to begin and end at the temple door.  If we pay attention, watch closely, and listen carefully, we will find it vibrating throughout everything around us.BlogImage-footd2

With Winged Heart

“With Winged Heart”  |  Anthony Satori

“But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night… and then to wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving.”

— Kahlil Gibran

Out There

"Beach Rocks"  |  Anthony Satori

“Out There”  |  Anthony Satori

“Look at the world out there, my God, my God, look at it out there, outside me, out there beyond my face and the only way to really touch it is to put it where it’s finally me, where it’s in the blood, where it pumps around a thousand times ten thousand a day.  I get hold of it so it’ll never run off.  I’ll hold on to the world tight some day.  I’ve got one finger on it now; that’s a beginning.” Fahrenheit 451  (Ray Bradbury)  

Limitless

“Limitless”  |  Anthony Satori

“Out of my pocket I drew a little edition of Dante — my travelling companion. I lit a pipe, leaned against the wall and made myself comfortable.  I hesitated for a moment.  Into which verses should I dip?  Into the burning pitch of the Inferno, or the cleansing flames of Purgatory?  Or should I make straight for the most elevated plane of human hope?  I had the choice.  Holding my pocket Dante in my hand, I rejoiced in my freedom.  The verses I was going to choose so early in the morning would impart their rhythm to the whole of the day.” – Nikos Kazantzakis (Zorba the Greek)

Magic and Beauty

“Purple Skates”  |  Anthony Satori

“The appearance of things changes according to our emotions.  Thus we see magic and beauty in them, while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves.” – Khalil Gibran

As an artist, my vocation is to create images that reveal to you the magic and beauty that pulses through the world around us.  But perhaps what I am really doing is revealing the magic and beauty in you.
