Can Art Heal Fear?

We sailed on Sunday. Such beauty heals my soul!
These mornings I wake up with fear in my belly. I am afraid for our world.

There is so much violence being done to the environment and to the people! Terrorists in Paris, the city of romance. Suicide bombers in Lebanon. A dam break in Brazil spewing toxic waste the whole length of a river, wiping out an entire ecosystem. It's overwhelming!

I cannot hold so much grief without self-destructing. I need beauty and color!

The memory of sailing on Sunday fills my mind with wonder. The fear is not forgotten, but the beauty and wonder of that day erases some of the pain.

What can I do to help the world heal? Is beauty the antidote?
