Art is real

I realize... I have made a mistake.... or at least in exploring an idea to the fullest, I have been walking down a path that does not accurately reflect my truest experience with the world.  And maybe I found the Goddess again... in a whole knew way. This would take longer than a facebook post to explain... The Goddess as I understood her isn't real. The soul isn't real. However... art can be defined...At least there is a definition that I find I accept this morning.

Art is the conscious or subconscious attempted by a sentient being to communicate with other sentiences, existing or imagined.

Sentience is real. It is a potent and precious expression of life, no matter what strata said sentience functions …

And well, one just never explains what one was actually thinking about *grins*. The Grammerly seems a bit pricy, but I think it’ll be worth it.
Now.. onto this story. This story has been written, half written, side w…
