Re: A philosophical question, of sorts

From: Nancy, Boston


I think we're all creators in some way. There are many who are able to become amazing artisans and fine artists. Every now and then though, one can encounter the work of one who see deeply and define the essence of a thing with a sublime sensibility. It seems to be the result of possessing a more open consciousness. I imagine that can be accessed by nature, training, pharmeceuticles or even accident. But a certain amount of education generally must be required in order to produce a work of art, a piece of music or dance, prose or poetry. It's in the moment that surpasses one's influences and training that I think genious is revealed.
