Beauty a typographic reminder just because we all need something like this after 2020.
A short quote from my new book, Peace in Santa Fe, about Beauty beyond a typographic reminder
What can we do to offer beauty to the people? God offers it to everyone, not just the rich, talented, or powerful. Flowers, snowflakes, clouds, birds, animals, waterfalls, rainbows, and an infinite number of things offer beauty.
What can we do to bring that incidental beauty onto the lives of people who don’t think in those terms? I can see it going many ways, and we should incorporate as many of these ways and methods as we can.
At the gallery, we can offer exquisite small items, and objects with lasting value. A gallery is not a place for the ephemeral. That’s the arena of the musician and dancer. Though there is nothing as beautiful as the human body, the world has overlaid that with unavoidable sexual reactions—though the lines of a face would work well.
I’m thinking on paper here to try to bring you to the place of seeking solutions to this major focus of an artist. I can’t make this a generalized statement to all artists. This is what I feel the Lord putting on my heart that Bezalel Anointing is all about.
I’m grateful for your offer of help, Denzell, and your Oholiab anointing. Haloke, I sense that you are interested in this, and that you have trainees who are gifted in this area. Maybe I could offer a place to sell your work or their artwork, and internships to help them learn artistic skills, I don’t know. I do know I am supposed to include you in this letter.
So, what is this letter about? If I knew, I would be writing you and telling you what we are going to do. I have rough ideas, glimmers of coming things, and a certain knowledge that I am to write this letter to the two of you.
Also know that the artist’s beauty, the author’s truth, the dancer’s grace, and the musician’s peace are all to open up the people to the glory of God’s focus, Love!
