Assignment: Interpret the six ways a person can ”think like an artist”…
1. “Look at things more closely than most people.”
Artists have the capacity to see things without eyes. They see things in the deepening of their being and understand the realityof life in different aspects. They don’t see things, they feel things. They don’t need knowledge to see things, they have wisdom to see things. They don’t use the mind to understand things, they use the heart for understanding the beauty of things. And when this process happens they feel absolute happiness. We have the same potential, but we must practice every time, every where and then we will enjoy seeing everything because the light of our lives will be on. Raul
2.”Take risks, expose yourself to possible failure.”
Sometimes I don’t care if something is going to be perfect, I just try to have a good time. I like to do different things, to enjoy my time and not worry what is going to happen after. Obviously, I don’t always get it right. For example, when I was a child I was climbing something really big. I was the only one that went that far. But I couldn’t handle it anymore and I fell down and I broke my arm in three parts and I remember that really hurt. I like the risks sometimes because Im young, I have to make new experiences in my life. I think if you are always in the same thing, in a routine, your life becomes boring. Janaina
Why? Because life is a risk. Every day is different from the other day. Every day we need to live like it is the last day of your life. When we have some new project, we shall do it although we might have failure. But we need to stand up like warriors in the war. We need to fight each war in life. It’s better for us. Simon
There is one saying, “who doesn’t take risks, doesn’t win”. Even if I know that I won’t win in
something or that I will have failure I will do it no matter if I expose myself like a bad writer.
My idea, my goal, is to make a book of poems and I will.
Where are my risks? Probably that people won’t like it or maybe because now in this era
the young people don’t like to read poems. But it is my satisfaction that will make me happy. There are many people with good ideas, but with the phantom of failure they don’t take any risks. Others because it is hard for them to become losers. But the people who take risks, even if they lose they are big winners. This is another way to learn something
about life. These experiences can be good teaching for the young people. Felix.
