Art in the time of a global pandemic. Who thought that would be a thing we'd be writing about here? Not you? Me either.
Have you ever had the thought that words aren't enough? That there is no language for the idea you're trying to express? I've heard people say they dance to express the things they can't express any other way. And, well, I totally get it. While that's not the case for me (I dance because I'm … Continue reading Language Fails Us
What is the soul? One year ago I set out to create a score that would inform the creation of as much of my work as possible over the next couple of years. One year into it this "score," which has turned out to be more an evolution of questions than an actual score, has … Continue reading Is A Question Ever Too Big?

Remember that Creative Process survey I sent out several weeks back? I posted it on social media, included it in a weekly newsletter and sent it to my friends and colleagues. Some of you took it, most of you didn't (it's never too late to take it, hint hint), but for those of you who … Continue reading We Are Terrible At Doing What We Say We Want To Do
