How you listen to an album is a self-portrait. The way you interpret the lyrics, the language you understand them in and the translation you place over each word. How you read a book is as if you were creating your own personal diary, a million of them, as you grow. As you become older and reread the same books, you begin to realize how differently you relate to the highlighted portions in them. Keep your little notes inside, record the life you had when you read that book for the first time, take polaroids of your surroundings. Become a documentor of your own life. Sit in front of art in art museums and take it in piece by piece. Dare your human senses to become more than what this capitalist society offers you; slow living is for the brave. Assimilating this belief into your every day practice is taking an abstract concept and turning it into a life philosophy. It is the delicate art of living. It is realizing you have the control over how you perceive life and vice versa. It is simutaneously becoming the art and the artist.
