In case you were wondering, I haven’t forgotten about the essential writing theme… just keep on getting distracted by other things (and some more to come this week).
Here’s something short and sweet for a Monday on the essence of art, or what makes art essential.
I don’t generally think about writing as art – do you?
But I have to confess, this video based on the work of a performance poet has got me thinking a little differently about it.
This line in particular spoke to me (and got me saying: yes!)
Would they be glad that I did because they got something good out of it?
And my thinking differently about art got me noticing this line from Henry Miller too:
Whoever uses the spirit that is in him creatively is an artist. To make living itself an art, that is the goal.
Here’s to a week of a creative living Hat tip to Jamie Ridler Studios for pointing me to the video.
