"The ego is nothing other than the focus of conscious attention.""No work or love will flourish out of guilt, fear, or hollowness of heart, just as no valid plans for the future can be made by those who have no capacity for living now."- Alan Watts
I've always wondered why people would stare at me when I was drawing in public or out at the bar, and then I watch a video of Chet doing some quick sketches and instantly knew how they felt. The trance an artist goes into, much like what Romain Rolland described as a, "simple and direct fact of the sensation of the eternal", is pretty magical to watch it. Keep'em coming!
Thanks for your extremely interesting comments. I feel that life is magic and the practice of art is a great expression of this fact.Your friend,James
