Watching a travel video shot by Jan Schwarz in Japan, I was moved by the feelings the videographer brought to every scene, whether he was in a village, a forest of giant bamboo, or a busy intersection in Tokyo. Later, while writing a grateful comment on his video page, it occurred to me to say, “Good art seeks the portal of an open heart.”

Several days later I remembered the video, and an additional thought occurred: “And we seek the opening of the heart to which great artists can lead us.”
