I saw this quote on the wall of the da Vinci exhibition at the Venetian hotel in Las Vegas. It made me think.
I think I see.
I think that I have been all three people at different times of my life. Life with blindfolds on can be easier. Once you see it becomes almost painful. What can I do? I am only one person. I’d rather not know. I’d rather not see.
But when you really see what’s going on then you must act. That’s why I try at least. I have a lot of guilt for still being wasteful. Because now I KNOW it’s wasteful. I can’t pretend.
I was so inspired by the da Vinci exhibit. To imagine one man did so much in his life. He painted the Mona Lisa and the Last Supper, improved existing inventions like the clock and musical instruments, dreamed big and went bold.
Most of us waste in on the couch watching the Food Network. So now I want to paint, to draw, to sing, to play the guitar, invent the next great invention and dream. Dream of possibilities. Endless possibilities.
Or at least blog while sitting on the couch watching the Food Network.
“I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.”
