Building Better Human Beings

I read a FB quote today about art not just being an artist or dancer or performer, but about building better people. I think that can be true if it’s about a personal journey and finding your way through expression, whatever your medium. Building a better “you” I think is about wanting to get better, as much for ourself as for others. Covid-19 has split humans into many camps, has raised many issues that have to do with rights, safety, security, individual privacy vs the health of a global population. If art helps us express the emotions and consequences of our actions, choices, values, then it contributes to all humanity. If being an artist helps you look in the mirror, then there is no better reflection. Make it a good one.
