Michael Jackson, Art & Life


Michael Jackson was undeniably one of this world's greatest artists.

His art will "live on", as we say.

Much has been written about art imitating life.

I read a great quote by William Faulkner relating to that:

"The aim of every artist is to arrest motion,
which is life... and hold it fixed so that
a hundred years later, when a stranger
looks at it, it moves again since it is life."


This is why we appreciate art -- if we do :)

But "as time goes by"..."we must remember this":

There is life...

And then there is Life!

Jesus said, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me." -- John 14:6

He also said, "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly." -- John 10:10

"He who has the Son has Life. He who does not have the Son does not have Life." --1 John 5:12

Sobering...and glorious.
