Shift­ing sands


WKND - - Points Of View -

The words ‘I dream my paint­ing and then I paint my dream’ by Vin­cent van Gogh ran across my mind as I read about the art­works of Nathaniel Alapide (Sketch­ing sto­ries into sand, Jan 13) .I couldn’t help but think about how self­less he sounded when he said he cre­ates no bar­ri­ers for his art­work and wants peo­ple to in­ter­act with them. His mind­set seems to be like his art— sans bor­ders. I be­lieve he is able to cre­ate these won­der­ful de­signs be­cause he’s ac­cepted the univer­sal truth that noth­ing lasts for­ever. One must cher­ish things while they last, but not for­get to share their pre­cious­ness with fel­low be­ings too. In that way, they don’t get de­stroyed at all as they are eter­nally sketched in the sands of time.
