Woke up this morning

to some sad news. One of my favorite photographers died. The death of artists is always so difficult because they give so much to the world. Many times, they give us a way to interpret what is going on around us. Seeing any life cut short is really difficult. We need artists/creatives, they help to formulate ideas in a way that inspires us. The writer Anais Nin put it very well when talking about writers, “The role of the writer is not to say what we can all say, but what we are unable to say.” It is the same with all creatives. Art tells a story that reaches us on a completely different level. We are emotional creatures, we can’t underestimate the influence and power of art.
