What we and others see as our weaknesses are begging to be transmuted/transformed through love into our greatest strengths and the source of our greatest creativity...
On a recent visit to my hometown, NYC, I attended the usual figure drawing sessions at the Art Students' League. After class, evening time, I rested for a while on a bench in the lobby. Soon after, a blind woman - Asian, with orange-dyed hair, walked in, poked around with her walking cane, then sat down on the bench diagonally across from me.

We humans have many special abilities that they don't have, but we often misuse them due to our capacity for imagination which can both help and/or lead to a destructive sort of irrationality. …Continue
We have to be careful not to miss out on, neglect, ignore, sacrifice the precious aspects of life due to the increasing demands for a focus on technicalities, economics, and minutia.

In this rule-driven world, isn't it great that in art, one can break the rules? Why? Because breaking rules is the very essence of creativity, and without it there is no creativity. In this light, ANYONE can be an "artist" in their own way, expressing themselves uniquely through a creative medium even under the most tyrannical conditions. A tyrannical leader may set limits on life and its counterpart - art, but there is always that individualistic touch here or there that survives through…Continue
