    Thanks for including me. This was really my first try at seriously talking about art, per se, though I write on the subject of creativity on my own blog often enough.

    The entire selection of links here makes me want to read a lot more and write on the subject more often. Thanks for the encouragement, and for putting me in such worthy company.

    • That’s what is so fascinating to me Samir–the way in which principles in life affect in any arena, whether it be art or other. And your post on “context” is an important one I think–goes to the question of what Art is. Maybe we shouldn’t ask what but where and how.

  4. Thanks very much for the feature!

    • Your welcome Gita, and thank you for the post; I found it a very good lesson personally. Reminds me of the old story of Winslow Homer, just sitting and looking at the ocean, and his sister-in-law getting perturbed with him as wasting his time, asking him what he was doing. I believe his reply was, “I’m looking”.
