Reference to: Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simon
By TIMOTHY GORDON
So interesting and beguiling a man. He seemed to be gifted from the angels and tried hard to live amongst the mortals. Well, he did what he was built for and he seemed never to sway. Such was his vision and enrapture of existence and its expression.
He was a boundless genius of multi dimensions, quite unfathomable in our present world with its intellectually rigorous but intuitively reductive perspective of life. He was living and working for something greater than himself. His cultural, artistic and scientific knowledge enabled his abilities toward total empowerment and created a devoted and unrelenting response to it.
He moved into a place in himself that created work of insurmountable energy, power and unparalleled clarity and beauty. This inner source he was so aware of seemingly inspired his being, gave him his purpose and delivered his engrossing and enduring works of art.
He is perhaps the greatest artist of humankind. A spokesperson for the dove, a light for humanity and a genius of all artistic pursuit, he was an evangelist of the artistic realm and of human expression. He gave us a way of looking into the love and adoration we can have and feel for the source of all life and the endless creative and bountiful expression that this relationship provides.
