Beauty: Why we're desperate for it

Beauty is the thing that let’s us know what we’re doing matters.

It may be elusive or hard to define, but it’s definitely recognizable when we see it.

When I make something beautiful, or encounter beauty in the world around me, it’s like surfacing from amnesia and being brilliantly present.

It’s a delighted recognition of the human story and my place in it.

When I surround myself with beauty in the places where I live and work, that beauty becomes a mirror which reminds me that I have something beautiful to offer.

And so do you.

And what we do together profoundly matters!
