“Beauty will save the world” These powerful words were written in a 1868 novel by Fyodor Dostoevsky by the name of “The Idiot”.
I have this pastel drawing of a goose hanging in my room. Every day, throughout the day this character brings a smile to my face. According to science a smile stimulates the brain’s reward system and reduces mental and physical stress! Now you are wondering what a goose has to do with Dostoevsky’s words? To me the goose is beautiful. According to science the goose is healthy for me by bringing a smile to my face. That means he’s changing my world, making me happier.
