The Truth Is Rarely Pure

I make art like I live.

I live artfully and create art that reflects my life.

Art is at times my confessional, and sometimes a hallelujah chorus. It expresses my sorrow and my joy. At the altar of art, I lay down my fears and toss my exultations like rose petals.

It teaches me about myself, and not always gently. However, I still consider it my salvation because it does not lie. It tells the truth, and I have to see it.

Sooner or later.

Confession

In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
………….~ Buddha

Truth is by nature self-evident. As soon as you remove the cobwebs of ignorance that surround it, it shines clear.
………….~ Mahatma Gandhi

It’s no wonder that truth is stranger than fiction. Fiction has to make sense.
………….~ Mark Twain

The truth is rarely pure and never simple.
………….~ Oscar Wilde

About CarolWiebe

Art entices, inspires, and delights me. Art is a vehicle for laughter, tears, wonder, enlightenment--taking me on a constant path of discovery. You can't say that about housework (except, perhaps, for the crying part).
