giovanny fernandez – a young man i met the other day while eating at the museum. he approached us with a big smile, and a bounce to his step to take our order for dinner. he talked with his eyes, his hands, his body and he had so much to share!
“how are you today? did you see the picasso and rivera exhibit? oh it’s just so amazing! i love art! i see art everywhere i go! even in the kitchen when i serve these dishes. the chef is an artist! every dish i bring you, you will see the art! i am so lucky to be working here!”
i just wanted to take this young man’s energy and enthusiasm for life and package it up and share it with the world! he was beyond adorable!
we went on to have a discussion about his love of art, and how’s he’s working on a piece of art that incorporates all kinds of objects that some people would consider trash but he’s repurposing to be art. he was over the top excited about his project, and clearly it meant so much to his soul to be creating it to eventually share with the world.
if we all lived with this kind of passion, this kind of desire to make the most out of life, our world would be such a happy beautiful soulful place.
