Fishnet Imagination

I have a creative side. Although, I sometimes keep it undercover to protect it. Like, it wears the black glasses connected to a big flesh colored nose with a mustache floating under it... and a trench coat (almost forgot that accessory). That way it won't get beat up by real life. Yeah, that's my creative side.

So tonight the trench coat comes off (clothed underneath) and I let myself be absorbed in the beauty of the art that Janet Echelman creates.


Besides the end product, I love the process of how Janet discovered her medium. It was years. Um, eek. I look ahead and wonder, what am I doing now? But Janet's story, which produced goosebumps on my arms, gave a reminder insight.

The problems we encounter today (I hope) will lead to new ideas for the sculpture we'll create tomorrow.

So, I want to know: How can a person keep the imagination ignited so that it's free to discover new art?

Thanks for the TED share Hanna. "Rediscovering the wonder"...might be my inspiration thought for a bit.
