The Art of Life

An elderly lady had achieved fame as an artist rather late in life. At the opening of an art exhibition of her work, she was being interviewed by a young art critic.

It was well known that she had had many problems and tragedies during her life and the critic remarked that none of her paintings seemed to reflect those difficult times, but were all bright and cheerful.

“Why was this so?”, the art critic asked.

“The art of life, “the old lady replied simply, “is using the shadows to emphasize the highlights!”

What profound words; we have much upon which to ponder from these truths!


With many peaceful blessings
