What do you see?

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
Thomas Merton

Have we stopped seeing the art on our walls, the photos on the shelves, the collection in the display?
(Just like we stop noticing the piles of clutter?)
When we first displayed  these items it was because they had meaning and
we felt connected to them and the memories they evoked.

Is that still true for you?

Thoughtfully consider if your taste is the same,
If now the book shelf is over crowded or
your mementos have just become dust magnets.

Maybe rearranging some items could give new feeling to a room or space.

Or editing a collection down to just a few of the most special items.

Reframing the photos in similar frames would unify the look and draw your attention to the subjects.
(Perhaps it is time for updated photos of the people you love and care about?)

We each get to decide what is art in our lives.

The items we hang on our walls,
display on our shelves and
have homes on our desks should be things that make our hearts happy.

Choose and display items which continue to have meaning,
inspire you,
remind you,
and make you feel at home in your own house and life.

Happy rearranging.
