This piece was created as a part of my 2016 project #AbstractAffirmationsDaily where I share an abstract piece of art with a positive message every day. Here's the story that accompanies this piece, posted on 9/26/2016:
PHEW. Who needs a couple deep breaths? I watched the debate tonight as I'm sure some of you did, and my heart literally hurt as I witnessed the tension, the deflection, the name calling and the finger pointing. I strongly considered not watching at all to spare myself the frustration, and I almost closed my laptop 100 times.
But I didn't.
Despite the infuriating state of our national politics, I remind myself that ignoring a problem doesn't make it go away. Dismissing something because it's complex and seemingly futile doesn't bring us any closer to a solution. Only action can do that. Only collaboration and creativity and education can do that. So I will keep doing my best to stay informed and I'll engage in rational, respectful, open-minded conversations any place that I can, even when it's uncomfortable. We all have our beliefs, and I respect everyone's right to engage (or not engage) in the political system, but I wanted to at least share the conclusion I've come to for this election. We can wish we had better, or we can create better.
