Appreciating a piece of art is like having a conversation with a stranger. You have to have the patience to listen, to hear. You have to have concern for what this person may say to you. You have to weed through the language or cultural barriers, the economic or social differences. When you are together you must make a decision about if you want this moment to be a meaningful part of your life experience. You must suspend selfishness and be open for what could happen because you have had the chance to be with this person at this time and place.
Art is everywhere and always offering you the opportunity to be something more after having opened up to something different.
