How Would You Really Enjoy Spending Your Life?


What would you like to do if money were no object?

Today I came across this beautiful and inspirational video  narrated by English philosopher Alan Watts.. and cant help myself not to post it here as it is very uplifting and makes you think about our life, our desires, our goals…

I want to share with you.. Specially if you are an artist – take time and watch.

 Life of an  artist is unpredictable, sometimes I have money, sometimes I don’t. But this never forced me to do something else as I believe in myself, and I knew from childhood that I want to paint and being an artist is my way of life.

 So, all artists out there, if you are struggling with some temporary problems or are in any kind of doubts about your future, – take your time and enjoy the video.

We all need a piece of inspiration from time to time.

If you are planning a gorilla track in Musanze and have some time afterwards, you are most welcome to stop by in our centre!

Workshop activity is regular updated also on Flickr – welcome to check out more photos on Agasozi Art Center photo set.
