The artist Renatė Lušis leads art therapy club "Modus Vivendi"
that is located in the Hospital for the mentally ill in Klaipeda. She says:
"Art therapy can add great harmony to life"

love needs no authority except itself
We trust that there is no such thing as no chance.

The things that we love tell us what we are
Saint Thomas Aquinas

The beginning

The poem below was discovered by me while browsing through a web today. These verses talk out of itself . The verses portray state of mind that inhabits the hearts of many in the hospital where the art therapy club Modus Vivendi is located.
The poem looks like a bacground on which the artists build their colorful 'Hi!' - are trying to escape (to change the reality).
Time will show what we succeed to build on what was comprehended by us.


I Should Have Had Asked You to Dance

I should have haPosted by homar murillo d asked you to dance with me,
But the beat seemed not right;
I should have had asked you to dance with me,
But the rhythmn seemed wrong;
I should have had asked you to dance with me,
But the melody seemed out of tune.

Oh, I could have had held your hands;
If only for a moment, I could have had felt your warmth;
The memory would have lasted a lifetime;
But my own hands were cold;
My mouth was dry and mute;
It was unable to utter the words it should have had told.

I was left dancing alone
In a crowd of people whose faces and names were barely known.

I should have had asked you to dance with me,
But the music was almost over.
Perhaps in another dance floor,
Perhaps if the songs were different,
Maybe then I would have the courage...
