Hector Garcia and Francesc Miralles delivered one of the most beautiful pieces of art when they wrote Ikigai.
Ikigai is a Japanese word that put simply translates to:
“The happiness of always being busy.”
The authors write on a broad spectrum of Japanese life. One of the things that’s stuck with me is what they wrote regarding art:
“Art, in all its forms, is an ikigai that can bring happiness and purpose to our days. Enjoying or creating beauty is free, and something all human beings have access to.”
My favorite forms of art are manifested in the written or spoken word. Books, music, poetry and everything in between!
Tell me, what’s your favorite form of art to indulge/create/consume?
What’s art got to do with it?
