The Task of Art

"The task of art is to transform what is continuously happening to us, to transform all these things into symbols, into music, into something which can last in man’s memory. That is our duty. If we don’t fulfill it, we feel unhappy. A writer or any artist has the sometimes joyful duty to transform all that into symbols. These symbols could be colors, forms or sounds. For a poet, the symbols are sounds and also words, fables, stories, poetry. The work of a poet never ends. It has nothing to do with working hours. Your are continuously receiving things from the external world. These must be transformed, and eventually will be transformed. This revelation can appear anytime. A poet never rests. He’s always working, even when he dreams. Besides, the life of a writer, is a lonely one. You think you are alone, and as the years go by, if the stars are on your side, you may discover that you are at the center of a vast circle of invisible friends whom you will never get to know but who love you. And that is an immense reward."

Hello hello!
It's yet another wet and cold weekend and it looks like the winter is fighting hard to stay.
I thought a new bunch of flowers would be in order.

Also, I want to use these flowers to say Thank You.
Thank you dear friends for your support and thoughts!
I'm blogging for around 3 years and it still catches me off guard how much you guys, as virtual as you are, those of you I was lucky to meet and those I (still!) haven't met; care and are there to offer your support, encouragement and sweet words.
After my last post (that was over nothing serious really, just a little winter blues) I got a couple of emails and tweets that made me think (not for the first time) that sometimes my 'bloggy' friends know me better than my 'real' friends.
Your emails (/comments/tweets/messages) mean the world to me (you know who you are!).

Thank You Friends!!
And I hope those flowers can make you as happy as you make me.
