Art is so important, especially in today’s “high tech” world with computers and electronic information coming to us in such immeasurable speeds.  I don’t’ know about you, but I think the world would be a better place if we all found time to take breather and escape from the hectic day to day world.  I fully believe that the phrase “Stop and smell the roses” should become everyone’s daily mantra.  Maybe to make this work in today’s society we need to re-phrase it to read: “Stop and smell the coffee” … which could help millions rejuvenate and replenish their souls and bodies.  Even in the coffee houses with Wi-Fi connections, we can’t seem to relax for that coffee break.  Whatever happened to our break time?

Now that I think about it, I should have paid more attention to the benefits of “recess” in grade school!
