If You’re Searching For A Path…

If You’re Searching For A Path…

I have recently come across a tiny little poem by a Bulgarian poet, Blaga Dimitrova:

Grass

“I’m not afraid

They’ll stamp me flat

Grass stamped flat

Soon becomes a path…”

Sometimes it’s difficult to be yourself and go against the current. But it’s worth it.
This post comes a little bit late for the Coming Out Day, which was on the 11th October, but I still want to dedicate it to all those who have become paths for others…
Let’s see the best paths from art!

If you feel lost, or at the crossroads, I hope these paths from art will lead you to a better place, an awaited decision, an answer…

Magda, art historian and Italianist, she writes about art because she cannot make it herself. She loves committed and political artists like Ai Weiwei or the Futurists; like Joseph Beuys she believes that art can change us and we can change the world.
