Thank you, ART
Here comes my favorite holiday of the year, Thanksgiving!
What can be better than celebrating food, family, and friends? I realize that art plays such a huge role in my life, so I wanted to take a moment to be thankful for all the ways art makes life better:

Thank you ART, for acting as an ice-breaker during awkward social moments, that transform into heated debates about what is art.

Thank you ART, for having such an unregulated and mysterious market, because if it was more regulated then it wouldn’t be so continuously fascinating.

Thank you ART, for creating hope during a time of darkness.
Thank you ART, for inspiring people to action.
Thank you ART, for creating purpose.
Thank you ART, for the sense of humor.
Thank you ART, for embracing both criticism and praise equally.
Thank you ART, for being inspirational, visible, invisible, audible, edible, conceptual, functional, impractical, entertaining, intellectual, superficial, truthful, ironic, curious, controversial, beautiful.
Thank you ART, for giving me endless subjects to write about.
