The Artdog Quote of the Week
I’d describe this past week as one heck of a storm–especially in southern California (with Thousand Oaks in the center of the bullseye). If ever we needed an umbrella against the disaster-storm, it’s now.
But, gratitude? Really?
That’s a pretty hard ask, in a country that’s seen raging weather but continued denial of climate change, ever-deepening political divides, and seemingly more gun violence every day. This may be the season of Thanksgiving, but it’s often hard to find solid reasons for hope.
Well, we all need to suck it up. We can never afford to give in to apathy–not if we ever want things to get better. There are bright spots in the darkest places. It’s our job to shelter and foster those little flames of hope so they can grow.
So look around, be positive and think creatively. Let’s explore all the ways that we can improve our world.
