Thursday Thoughts...

"One eye sees, the other feels".  

Paul Klee

I got a small smile upon my face when I read these words.  I thought to myself - yeah, that's kinda right isn't it?

Perhaps its simply another way of considering our duality - our logical and our motional; our analytical and our intuitive; our left brain and our right brain; our yin and our yang...

It felt right for a painter to use the eyes to describe it tho; and to turn things upside down with the senses by having one of our eyes feeling, not seeing.

I like how it suggests that when we view art we are both seeing and feeling; and that by virtue of viewing, it is our eyes that are also feeling. Fun!

In its upside way it made perfect sense to me and made me feel balanced.
