Sanity is a cozy lie.” ~ Susan Sontag (source)
How sane does the artist need to be? Shouldn’t they be a bit off to look at the world differently and courageously? I know for myself, not off enough to create a new path, but off enough to allow me to think creatively and not to accept the conventional. I guess the gift I do have is to be observant and be fascinated with what I see. To see the exceptional in the ordinary.
Challenge yourself to pay attention to the ordinary… And see the extraordinary.
