What makes you cry? Do you like crying?
If any art piece makes me cry, I love it. That’s what art is for: those exhilarating emotions that make us cry.
It can be because the story is sad. Or because it just is too beautiful. Or because you know it’s not real. But you cry. The story, the colors, the music, something, touches you, it touches that calloused heart, and tears are shed.
That has been my experience with art. And if you’re like me, I invite you to my series of posts I’ll be doing: “What Made Me Cry This Week.” These will be posts where I share on what I’ve read, seen, or heard that has made me cry, that has made me dance and weep at the same time.
I’m hopeful these blog posts will have a small synopsis or something that makes it worth your time. Nothing too serious. They will be short posts where I share what I love, most likely every Thursday.
Through this series I hope you find out new artists to follow or just read one of their works. I also hope to connect with you. For us to share what we love. For us to know that we’re not alone.
So feel free to comment, here and in the following posts: did you feel the same? Or was your feeling different? Is there another artist or work that you feel matches this one? What made you cry this week?
