As I heard about yet another celebrity death this past week, I started thinking about how different people have different views of other peoples’ legacies. While some people only remember the bad things someone did, other people only see the good. We all should have a mind toward legacy building. Our legacies are the only things left behind of ourselves after we are gone.
Life is full of changes. We face many different kinds of changes in our lives everyday. Sometimes these changes are good, and sometimes they’re bad. Some changes really hold no consequence to our lives. Possibly the thing in our lives that defines our character the most is in how we accept change. To we let changes in our lives dictate our path, or do we face them head on and declare victory over them.
We all interpret art based on our own experiences in life. One thing to consider when interpreting art is the artist’s intent. What was in the artist’s heart and mind when they created their work of art? Does the artist’s intent really matter in interpreting art?
