It may be that the deep necessity of art is the examination of self-deception. – Robert Motherwell
We all have our blind spots.
As I get older (and hopefully wiser) I realize more and more how true the word “blind” is in the description.
We all have areas where we literally “can’t see”.
This quote to me means that art is a medium through which our blind spots can be revealed.
I believe that deep, meaningful relationships are great for this as well.
On one side of the coin our loved ones look past our blind spots and faults. They love us in spite of our blindness.
And they can show us our blind spots. They can gently (or not so gently if that is what is needed) point out something we didn’t even see.
Look for the blind spots in your life. Be aware of your own self-deceptions. Don’t convince yourself that you have it all figured out. You don’t. You need help. We all do.
Make it a great day.
