Another nature drainage ditch photograph

I dont’ know, maybe I should do a nature in the drainage ditch photography study. Again, I took this with my iPhone yesterday. It looks kinda creepy.

Been thinking about your photo and comment all day.

98% of growing up I thought creativity was a gift that some had and some didn’t. A 7th grade art class at Jane Long was thoroughly convincing: I did NOT have the gift. Then I read an article in Reader’s Digest about a Soviet study that found that basically everybody could be creative.

Then at lunch I’m listening to KERA and there’s a question about the blurry line between art and craftsmanship. Guest says great art requires good craft.

My craft skills are weak. Or at least undeveloped. But craft skills can be taught, like you do to your students. I took a mosaics class and now my kitchen has a piece that is all mine and I love it; plus one out back, and one on the front porch. And some other stuff I’ve done with vases from the resale shop.

Your Purple Dirt is creativity + craft = art.

And now I don’t have to worry about the poisons in your water supply…
