The Last of 2010
The end of the year is upon us. In the latest e-newsletter Robert Genn writes about things we may not see anymore, such as newspapers, and things, such as electronic books, that may become more a part of our lives. I know there are differing opinions about that subject, but my main focus from the article is that art making is also growing... Genn writes "art fills a vital human need for life enhancement. Art reboots the cerebral cortex, teaches new skills to underutilized hands, arouses dormant sensitivities and promotes latent passions. If need be, art gives us something to talk about besides the kids, grandkids and celebrities, hence making us more interesting people." There is something about the connection of working with our hands...the link of hand to eye that people find fulfilling, especially in today's fast paced high tech times. So I will continue to celebrate art, and the inward journey of discovery that it inspires!
...And you may have noticed a change in the look of my blog. I have redesigned it with a lighter feel for the new year. The process was fun and easy with Blogger. I do appreciate the technology we have, but for me it will never take the place of simple hand work.
Happy New Year to you all!
