Beauty as We See It
In life we have beauty surrounding us. Beauty is everywhere, we just have to look carefully. An example would be this picture, a simple finding on a quiet afternoon. Sure at a first glance you focus on the painting and you judge it by how it looks but then you notice the quote and the more poetic it sounds the more attracted you are. It is certainly attention-grabbing, but then you start to think what the quote is actually telling you. Now this is the fun part, because it contains many interpretations, and when it comes to interpreting a piece of art, it's mostly "to each their own." This graffiti can have multiple meanings, one of which could be that one person in the relationship is humble and "down to Earth" while the other one is "the stars" meaning he or she tends to be a little more ambitious; or it could mean the distance between the two. The Earth revolves around the sun and it will continue to do so for many more years, but they probably won't get close enough to touch. The distance, the longing, and the desire to know more about each other is evident because they can't rely on physical touch to satisfy their craving for one another. The scorching sun and the delicate Earth won't touch unless there's a stimulant, but even then it will mean danger to both parties because the balance of their environments will be disturbed. Ultimately, they are two different beings separated with just enough distance that they feel the sadness and longing which intensifies their desire for each other. Most of the time your interpretation of a quote can show where you are in life, whether you interpret it as defining two star-crossed lovers or a sense of humbleness and ambition. If you stop and take in the beauty, you can discover a lot about yourself. Sometimes we don't think much about a simple picture other than for its aesthetic purpose, but every once in a while it is a good idea to stop and analyze the beauty and art in which we encounter. One simple piece of art has the power to capture out attention and one simple quote has the power to get us to reflect about our life. Now you tell us, what does this quote mean to you?
