Exploring Happiness #43- Work of Art
is my palette,
my sonnet, my novel,
which I can change
hoping that it will,

Poet's Notes about The Poem
This method can also work for all of us. We can decide to review all aspects of our lives with an artist’s critical eye to see what needs changing or adjusting so that we too can achieve a more balanced and creatively satisfying life.

Life is raw material. We are artisans.
We can sculpt our existence into something beautiful,
or debase it into ugliness. It’s in our hands.
I don’t want life to imitate art.
I want life to be art.
