Martha Graham said "We look
to Dance to impart the sensation of living
in an affirmation of life, to energize
the spectator into keener awareness of
the vigor, the mystery, the humor,
the variety and the wonder of life."
This is true for the Visual Arts as well.


December, 2008

QUOTE
A beginning white water rafter
will often focus on the rocks,
attempting to get around them
but notknowing how, often ending up
swimming, wet and scared. An experienced
rafter, by contrast, will ignore the rocks,
looking instead for the flow line of the water
moving far ahead. By following that flow,
focusing on it , as the water moves in an
endless stream around the rock,
the experienced rafter successfully
navigates through the dangers.
-by THE ARTIST'S WAY.
(Focus on your goals, not the obstacles)
