Musings on The Arts

Thoughts on the Kennedy Center Honors.

Watching the Kennedy Center Honors tonight, I’m reminded again of why, and how important the arts are in our lives. I wrote these notes as I watched.

It isn’t governments or politicians that make a civilization civilized. It is the arts. It is the dancers, the singers, the clowns, the musicians, the poets, the writers, the composers, the playwrights, the actors that make the playwrights word come to life, and the Muppets.

It is dreamers whose visions make us understand who we are and realize we can be better than we are. Kermit the Frog so eloquently puts it this way, “Someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection, the lovers, the dreamers and me.”

It is the arts, that make us human. For that I am thankful.

And for the Muppets too.

Retired reporter. Concentrating now on recounting Joanie's 12 year battle with cancer, a battle she waged with extreme courage, determination and an indomitable spirit, that, for me, serves as an example.
