When People Open Their Hearts
“‘What happens when people open their hearts?’
Reiko clasped her hands together on the table, cigarette dangling from her lips. She was enjoying this. ‘They get better,’ she said.”
— Haruki Murakami – Norwegian Wood
I agree. I enjoy life much more when my heart is open. My whole being expands. Sometimes it’s spontaneous and other times it takes a lot of work to get there. Really, though, it’s the only place worth being. It’s a place I’m trying to occupy more and more, all the time.
The sculpture is Jeff Koons’ Hanging Heart, which sold for $23 million. Who says artists don’t make money? Follow your heart!!
