My human, Mia, has been working so hard. She is so inspired by my plan. My plan is to go all over the United States meeting new and wonderful people, to share their stories, and to find the connection between all people. Mia is so wonderful, and I want to meet more wonderful humans like her.

Art: it takes all kinds

He danced... A human artwork.

The Art in New Orleans was so much fun!

 Now this is a city that understands the importance of 
creativity and expressing ones full self.

Everywhere  you go there is Artist selling their wares. 
Street performers of all kinds. 
Today I'm going to allow the great thinkers speak their words to you, as you enjoy the sights from New Orleans....

 Enjoy the walk through New Orleans with me today.

"The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance." ~ Aristotle

"If I could say it in words there would be no reason to paint" ~ Edward Hopper 

 "Continue to be yourself because in the end that's what people will remember about you" ~Source unknown

"Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures" ~ Henry Ward Beecher

"The artist's world is limitless. It can be found anywhere, far from where he lives or a few feet away. It is always on his doorstep." ~Paul Strand

"An artist cannot fail; it is a success to be one." ~Charles Horton Cooley

"It is such an extraordinary thing, music. It is how we speak to God finally - or how we don't. Even if we're ignoring God. It's the language of the spirit. If you believe that we contain within our skin and bones a spirit that might last longer than your time breathing in and out - if there is a spirit, music is the thing that wakes it up. And it certainly woke up mine. And it seems to be how we communicate on another level" ~Bono

"We're fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance."~Japanese Proverb

"Without music, life is a journey through a desert" ~Pat Conroy
