Bad Blogger

Oh internet...I am a bad blogger. It's true, I am. But I am trying to be better. Promise. Until then, here is a thought from Seth Godin...

My definition of art contains three elements:
  1. Art is made by a human being.
  2. Art is created to have an impact, to change someone else.
  3. Art is a gift. You can sell the souvenir, the canvas, the recording... but the idea itself is free, and the generosity is a critical part of making art.
By my definition, most art has nothing to do with oil paint or marble. Art is what we're doing when we do our best work.

I love this small passage from one of his recent blog posts. "Art is what we're doing when we do our best work." Think about it...
