art sanctifies...

"I believe that Magic is Art and Art whether it be music, writing, sculpture or any other, is literally magic. Art, like any magic, the science of manipulating symbols, words or images, to achieve changes in consciousness... Indeed to cast a spell is simply to manipulate words, to change people's consciousness, and this is why I believe that an artist or a writer is the closest thing in the contemporary world to a Shaman." Alan Moore

"The colours red, blue and green are real. The colour yellow is a mystical experience shared by everybody."





I have just created a new blog called Drene's Dreams, documenting my dreams accompanied by little doodles. Come have a look :-)

I love that quote and agree wholeheartedly. Creating is another way of traversing the veil and making the experience manifest.
