Subtracting Homogeneity

"It's not about adding diversity for the sake of diversity, it's about subtracting homogeneity for the sake of realism."
-Mary Robinette Kowal

Giving Raises

This brief blog post called 'The high-return activity of raising others' aspirations' is a wonderful reminder that spending a little time giving someone else a lift is totally worth it.

Kid the Wiz Freestyle

One of my favourite things about watching dance crews go for it is the amazing responses and feedback they give each other. It's this ridiculously supportive, excited thing and I LOVE it! (Plus - LOOK AT THOSE MOVES!)


Do the Work

"Inspiration is for amateurs — the rest of us just show up and get to work. And the belief that things will grow out of the activity itself and that you will — through work — bump into other possibilities and kick open other doors that you would never have dreamt of if you were just sitting around looking for a great ‘art idea.’ And the belief that process, in a sense, is liberating and that you don’t have to reinvent the wheel every day. Today, you know what you’ll do, you could be doing what you were doing yesterday, and tomorrow you are gonna do what you did today, and at least for a certain period of time you can just work. If you hang in there, you will get somewhere."
-Chuck Close
