Words of Wisdom Chapter 3

I stared at this one for a long time.  I think my smugness as an artist came out at once and said, "I CREATE!  THEREFORE IT IS ART!"  But once my head cleared and I was alone in a reverberating room of silence I realized..... The nature of creation is…

Words of Wisdom, Chapter 2
