Love, Art, & Tranquility

Gratitude is baked into many of the reflections Marcus Aurelius wrote in his journal. What I love about this quote, is that it reminds me that art is any work that matters. Acts done with intention and done to enhance the lives of others. Art is music, painting, and fiction for sure. But art is also how you engage as a spouse, parent, employee, or entrepreneur. We practice art when we make a meal, make amends, and clean up a mess.
 
Art isn't work you have to do. It's work you get to do. It's the work of empathetic, generous, and thoughtful human beings. People like you and me. People who engage with others not for what they can get, but for what they can give. Work done based on attachment to selfish results leads to suffering. Work done in service to others brings peace of mind.
 
"Love the humble art you have learned and take rest in it." - Marcus Aurelius
