Alice Fox manages a plot of land that provides her with food for her body, materials for her art, and sustenance for her spirit. Sustainability highlights all aspects of her life and work. She looks closely at everything she finds on this plot of land, engaging with it, finding ways to utilize it or at the very least to appreciate it. By noticing the detail in everything she discerns the possibilities it offers.
As I watched this video I realized that her approach to life could also be a great antidote for the over stressed world many of us live in today. Think about it for a minute: How different would your life be if you looked at life in the same manner? Would this kind of full engagement help you observe more clearly where someone was coming from and see their unique gifts? Would this approach help you become more fully present and in the process help you discover a way to make the world a better place?
Our overstressed world has many of us going so fast that we are neglecting to see the restorative beauty and magic around us. I think just slowing down and engaging more fully with our environment might supply us with some of the solutions we need.
With this in mind, I invite you to explore some of the ICWIB! art activities and videos for FREE. Why?
