Why You Need Art in Your Life

"Without beauty, there's no call to higher being." -Jordan Peterson

Sometimes a friend shares something with you that you need at the exact right moment. That happened with the video below featuring clinical psychologist and professor Jordan Peterson, whom my good musician and artist friend introduced me to recently.

If you are an arts lover, thank you for holding a space for the value of art and for supporting the work of artists in this world where many struggle to create and simply get by.

If you are an artist/creator, it's a good time as ever to be gently reminded of the higher importance of your work and craft — especially in these divided times among the lingering lure of disenchantment.

Your art matters. Artists matter. Never forget it.
