the freedom of memory
After reading Lisa's comment on Saturday I realized that, for me, watching this series unfold has been enlightening and fun. Who knows what will happen next. She (the series) now has a life and body of her own. She directs me in bolder, and previously (for me) unseen ways. All I have to do is show up. It's akin to what Elizabeth Gilbert says in her Ted talk about genius, that fickle and wonderful thing.
Seaside Studios here and Elizabeth Gilbert's Ted talk here.
I close with a quote from Whistler
"I wished to indicate an artistic interest alone, divesting the picture of any outside anecdotal interest which might have otherwise attached to it. A nocturne is an arrangement of line, form, and colour first. The picture is throughout a problem that I attempt to solve. I make use of any means, any incident or object in nature, that will bring about this symmetrical result." --
