Art makes me

Art has power

in the way we think, wonder, create or dream

it has the power to inspire 

or the ability to transport you past memories to a specific place or time.

When I finally visited the Christchurch Art Gallery after its very long awaited opening (five years laterwith Mr B

I was filled with so much joy

the power of the familiar made me grin from ear to ear

the thought of so much change around me but in this space there ware all these moments captured in time.

It took me back to all the times I visited when life was simpler (a life before the earthquakes)

when the boys were so much younger.

It was just wonderful to see all the art and my favourite pieces

I just wanted to stand and absorb the power and the feeling of joy in my soul and plan my next visit.
