Art and Grief and a Quote by Danny Kaye


May 15th Quote

“Life is a great big canvas. Throw all the paint on it that you can.” Danny Kaye

Grief is a great big canvas too. It’s got room for everything we are thinking and feeling. Enter so let’s throw all the paint on it that we can. Let’s take what’s inside of us and express it outside of us, never worrying about what it’s going to look like. Let’s get messy and splotchy and wild.

When we’re through the worst of our grief, we’ll look back at our canvas and realize, “What do you know. We put it all out there, and we created a masterpiece.”
