Without a doubt, life happens! The “Big L” can deliver some whoppers, and the question is: How are you going to deal with them?

Salvation of Cultural Interests

For the team at Artsphoria, immersing ourselves in cultural interests has remained our salvation. Admittedly, some of our favorite pastimes–like movies–have offered a diversion from focusing on life’s challenges. They have provided a few precious hours away from some harsh realities.

Here are some of the ways that the arts have helped us rise up again to face the Big L:

  • Provided a break from difficulties
  • Offered essential distance and fresh perspectives
  • Supplied an indispensable way to recharge our batteries

Source of Creative Problem Solving

Besides delivering a respite and way to rejuvenate our spirits, dipping into the arts well has helped us think creatively. Reading others’ insightful words or watching disabled dancers find a way to remain active in the performing arts spurs us to climb over our own barriers. As a result, you will find some of our discoveries sprinkled throughout Artsphoria’s pages.
