The Secrets of the Art

Here's some inspiration for you today:
"Don't only practice your art, but force your way into its secrets, for it and knowledge can raise men to the divine."
-Ludwig Van Beethoven

All art strives for the same end. To cross the void between solitary minds. To reach out and touch another human soul. Day after day, I find myself staring at the page, asking, how does it feel deep inside? And how do I invoke that feeling with nothing but words? How do I make what is in me echo in another heart?

For that is the secret of the art.

What secrets are you searching for?


  1. First off, I love this: "How do I make what is in me echo in another heart?" Gorgeous.

    Second off, I love the Pianoguys! They rock. So yummy. Thanks for sharing. :)

  2. PianoGuys are the best! They are coming to BYU Hawaii next weekend and I have tickets for the whole family!

    If one of my books ever gets made into a movie, I want them to do the soundtrack.

    1. Me too! I have all of Jon Schmidt's CDs and am quite the fan girl. And the cello! Words fail me. :) Have a blast at the concert.


What be on yer mind?
