About Awakening (130th edition)

Opening one’s eyes and facing the world has long been a fascination in art and literature, as if by looking more closely we can see life more clearly. This metaphor has been used to define spiritual conversion, sexual knowledge, and understanding of social issues. Art is a way of connecting with others and it can be a powerful tool to engage those who are still asleep. Creation can also be an act of renewal, of reassurance, and of perseverance. What has changed inside of you since you set out on your journey, and what remains to be discovered?
