Merry Christmas. As most of you know, I am not Christian, so it is somewhat difficult to write an appropriate Christmas blog. Yes, I want everyone to have a good holiday, but that’s not enough. ArtsKeeper is international. We want the best no matter your race, religion, color or nationality. We wish for, hope for, pray for success and accomplishment no matter if you are an artist, someone who likes the arts, someone who is a donor or patron of the arts. We look for the universal signs. Both Hannuka and Christmas feature lights, so I look for the meaning of light. There are other holidays or festivals, and often truth is found in darkness.
ArtsKeeper looks out for the benefit of the artist who creates art and thus makes life better for us, art that shows us different things, often beauty, often truth, often a new or different way of looking at things, a new way of thinking. Maybe that is the message of the day, not only glorification of what is, but seeing what could be, different things for different people or different cultures, often light (understanding) often hope for what could or should be. So that is my message, we should appreciate art and the artist no matter who he or she is, no matter where she or he lives. This is not tolerating others but making the world a better place.
