What is art?

A short philosophy by Kevin Korpela (© 2004 observatorydrive.com)

Well, maybe art is not an object or a thing that can be placed on a wall, stood on the floor or hung from a rafter,
Maybe art is the potential, possibility and hope in each of us that we spend so much time running after.

What if art is where we try to be who we are supposed to be,
Not who others tell us to be?

While our thoughtful friends help relieve our hardship, pain and hatred,
Because our friends guide us to understand the differences between the profane and sacred.

"What is art?" is a question without an answer,
Though our nearby companions and friends move "our art" towards something we can discover!
