Life is art

"Life is Art"...hat Martine geschrieben, das Leben ist Kunst! Ich glaub, ich nehm das nicht immer bewusst war und frag mich dann, wann ich Zeit habe "Kunst" zu machen neben allem was getan werden will...
Meine tägliche Routine ist Gift für die Aufmerksamkeit. Vielleicht geht es anders:
- einen anderen Weg wählen als jeden Tag ( vielleicht auf dem Weg zur Arbeit)....
- sich vorstellen, im Urlaub zu sein und so das Freiwillige wieder entdecken...
...und das eigene Heim, so, als wäre es eine Ferienwohnung... über die Menschen nachdenken, die hier leben...
- die kleinen Dinge genau betrachten...
- versuchen, die eigene Umgebung so zu sehen, als würde man sie zum ersten Mal sehen...
wenigstens ab und zu...

"life is art" Martine wrote! In times when I'm not aware of this fact, I ask myself, when I will have time to create "art" beside all the things that want to be done...
My daily routine is a killer to awareness. Perhaps a change is possible:
- choose another way as everyday (perhaps on your way to work)...
- imagine to be on vacation and rediscover the voluntariness...
...and the own home as if it would be a holiday home...ponder about the people who live there
- contemplate on the small things...
- try, to look at the own surroundings as if you would see them for the first time...
for at least now and then...


und: ja, ich habe zwei Paar gekauft...kein neumodischer Kram mit verschiedenen Schuhen ;)
and: yes, i bought two pairs...no newfashioned stuff with different shoes ;)

It's so difficult not to get lost in/sucked dry by everyday-tasks, work, household, etc - but you've got the right ideas, there's magic (sometimes hidden away) in everything. And every woman should have a pair of red shoes! I've got mine, bought two birthdays ago but not worn yet as still very shaky on my legs, but they are gorgeous Mary-Janes, with a lovely strap and little heels. They are my I'll-dance-a-waltz-when-I-can-shoes, reminding me of what I'm working towards, and I'm spinning dreams and stories on my way.

I love this post. It's a reminder to look at your own small world, with new eyes and discover the wonder in the everyday...the soulfulness of your life. Danke Uschi! And I love your shoes. They have inspired my post today. Take a look!

'Live Art' Two simple words, we NEED aspire too.
I do a photographic collaboration with another artist, on a daily basis. Images from around the home.
We have been going for over 6 months, and it is a wonderful way to connect with my 'household' in a way that is different to normal living & chores!
Your post is wonderful...love those shoes, I would have bought two pairs too!

Eigentlich habe ich geschrieben: Time is Art. Aber du hast es wunderbar abgewandelt, denn unser leben sollte Kunst sein. Es ist eine Kunst es so zu sehen.
Du hast ein Kunststück vollbracht indem du dir zwei paar Schuhe gekauft hast. Immer wenn du sie trägst wirst du daran denken, dass du Kunst lebst.
Ich wünsche dir ein kunstvoller Tag liebe Uschi.

I am so fortunated. Hans is vaccuming, cleaning, buying grocery... you name it! (Well, I help too) He makes sure I get time to work. I can very well relate to what you are writing though, Uschi. All those things that have to be done in a household are taking TIME. And for me; LOTS of time, cause I am very slow when it comes to domestic tasks...

I agree, it's such a great philosophy...to see your journey to work / people with fresh eyes, like experiencing for the first time or as a tourist - I'll keep your words to mind today.

Great post! I have been trying do this in my own life, and notice how easy it is to get off track, but it's just as easy to get back on the right track.

And lovely shoes! I can see why you bought two pair!

wearing the red shoes will make it all magic, its just a matter of attention. I read once that to do dishes with attention and love for the water and the plate--it becomes an act of meditation. I try i try but it is hard with all the things we think to do. Sometimes it just isn't worth it, worrying about too much small stuff. I love this post.
