I am not immune to the whirlwind of life. Marriage can be difficult enough without the added stress of having a military husband. Although challenging, life on the move can be extremely rewarding. During my moves across the country, most of my time is spent alone, as my husband is off working, so I had to find something I was passionate about in order to fill my days. I was lucky, and I discovered two things. First, there is history. I am so grateful to pursue an education in a subject that has always fascinated me. There are so many aspects of the world today that we would not understand or know without knowing what came before. Secondly, there is art. I use art, not only to express myself and as a hobby, but also in hopes that I can one day sell some of my pieces and impact others lives. Art and history have impacted my life in a monumental way, it is an inspiring thought that I could do the same, one day. In a way, the two sort of go hand in hand, which makes learning that much more exciting. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, or The MET, put it simply, “Art from the past holds clues to life in the past” (Kristen, 2012, para. 1). Without art, some times in history would be lost to today’s world. For some cultures, all that is left if their art. Sometimes, though, the most important part of a piece, is not what it is, its how it was made, what it was made on, and the tools involved. There are so many things one can learn about history through art, and vice versa. There is also a relief in knowing you have created something that could stand the test of time, too. Overall, life without art and history would end up being a jumbled mess and I can vouch for that.
