Travis Smith: my resume, bio and photos back to the main blog page

“For Attractive lips, speak words of kindness, For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people, For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry, For Beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day, For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. People, more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others.”

“No one tells you when you’re little that you’ll get involved in someone’s life and spend all this time and effort caring about them and knowing about them and getting used to them and then one day, you’ll just be two strangers again.”

“What should concern us is not that we can’t take what we read on the internet on trust—of course you can’t, it’s just people talking—but that we ever got into the dangerous habit of believing what we read in the newspapers or saw on the TV—a mistake that no one who has met an actual journalist would ever make.”

“Once upon a time there was a pig who spoke eight languages & did sculpture with pieces of wood & rusted metal he found on his travels. One day he was out in the woods working on a new installation piece & he met a family from a small town in Tennessee. They had been walking for days. The dad saw the pig & said what are you doing, little piggie? They were all quite surprised when the pig said working with counterbalanced forces using found objects. They all stood around & looked at the piece for a long time. No one said anything. Finally, the dad shrugged & turned to the mom & said I don’t know much about art but I know what I like & then they killed the pig & ate him.”

‘So do I, and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
