The Good, The Bad and The Ugly: How Do You Change the World?

Written by Dorene Lehavi

Recently, I saw an exhibition of paintings by a very talented artist. He clearly has a social conscience and his depictions ofrepparttar pain and misery of disenfranchised and minority people are so vivid and real you can't help but feelrepparttar 125386 pain in viewingrepparttar 125387 paintings. The artist is a warm, friendly, humble man whom I approached with a question, "does he ever paint another side of life?" He seemed interested in engaging in a conversation about it and frankly I was surprised at myself for even approaching him. I have never considered myself either knowledgeable or beyond too shy to talk about art to an artist this way. But, I felt compelled and in hindsight I know why. As a ‘60's activist and an angry idealist, I would have wanted his pictures out there inrepparttar 125388 face of those whom I and he blamed forrepparttar 125389 social injustices he expressed so people would realize and wake up. Well, decades later, I now know that doesn't work. I felt very stronglyrepparttar 125390 pain of his pictures, couldn't view them for long, and also knew if he wanted people to buy them and take them home, he'd have a very small audience. I asked if he'd consider using his brilliant artistic ability to inspire by painting beauty. I was surprised at what I was saying, because I have obviously metamorphosed from who I was inrepparttar 125391 past. About a year ago, I decided thatrepparttar 125392 11:00 p.m. news was not a good pre-bedtime story and stopped watching it. If you look closely you will note thatrepparttar 125393 “stories” are not necessarily chosen for their importance and useful information, but for entertainment and sensationalism. I can honestly say, my sense of well being has improved. When I watchedrepparttar 125394 11:00 p.m. news, my anxiety level heightened and with that I foolishly tried to begin a restful night's sleep.
