Life is Art

A common stereotype tells us a true artist is tortured. Has us believe that, in order to create works of art from a variety of experience, to make something out of nothing, an artist must figuratively wrestle with demons, must go inside him- or herself to a dark place where anyone with sense would refuse to go; and that, by doing so, an artist is irreparably altered to the extent he or she will never function in polite society again. …

What exactly does this mean?

I saw this sign in my neighborhood today. Any guesses as to what it means? I mean, there’s a 99 percent chance anyone who reads that sign, is part of the 99 percent. So what is it saying?

Mostly, I’ve considered myself lucky.  Maybe others had better education, steady jobs, more standing in the world.  But working for myself as an arborist, I’ve always …

At Thanksgiving dinner this year, my wife told everyone at the table what she was thankful for, and proceeded to ask our son and his friends to do the same.  As the answers poured out—Xbox, ice cream, legos, I began to prepare my own response.  My first thought was to express my gratitude that we only have one more year to put up with our handsome, charming, and in-over-his-head President, but in the interest of harmony, I held my tongue.  …
