Comments19/03/2017 #17 Sara JacoboviciI would need a week to spend in a quiet space to take in all the beautifully expressed thoughts and images you have produced in this buzz @Ali Anani. What you refer to hallucinating Dr. Ali, is what I consider your ability to not only "make sense" of it all but integrate what you do sense into a very grounded reality for us to learn from. Thank you.19/03/2017 #14 John RylanceThank you Ali for your comments.
My thoughts on the turtle tortoise shell, is its like how in England we often call vacuum cleaners Hoovers, which is a Maker's name. So all Hoovers are vacuum cleaners, but not all vacuum cleaners are Hoovers. In fact some are referred to has Dysons and others go by the name of Henry.
To paraphrase a well known quote a vacuum cleaner by any other name is still a vacuum cleaner. #819/03/2017 #9 Ali Anani#7 This is a good point dear @debasish majumder. Human have three basic types of tears. Those that come from materials like onion. Those that come how emotionally we feel and those that come naturally to prevent the dryness of our eyes. I focused here on tears pertinent to emotions.19/03/2017 #7 debasish majumderi wonder, whether lachrymose gland what human have, having similarity of construction and functions with other animals! apart from human being, no other creatures have a society and that too being constructed with deliberate effort, unlike other creatures in the nature. we only make exchange consciously attached with our emotions and passion. however, in my eyes, your post are always lucid and informative sir @Ali Anani! enjoyed read. thank you very much for sharing such enriching post.19/03/2017 #6 John RylanceGreat post Ali. Two thoughts, firstly many of us work better in peacefully quiet places. I remember well a young 8yr old boy, deemed disruptive, who on attending my Unit, for disruptive pupils, sat for a moment in the relatively peaceful classroom, and commented "Now I can Learn", and he did. In many ways it was his school's environment that was disruptive, he found that classroom too stimulating. Adults often are the same in their "busy" workplaces.
Secondly I found myself re the turtle going off at a tangent and wondering why rather saying turtle shell, which it is, you (we) say tortoise shell which it isn't? I don't expect an answer, just a point to ponder.19/03/2017 #3 Ali Anani@Sara Jacobovici published shortly prior to publishing this buzz a post on "Continuing to try to make sense...":

The Pinterest page was v. interesting and inspiring. Since I work for myself I am free to take time off or work whenever I want. As I do things that I love (Architecture, Writing and Art) work does not feel like work, it's playtime all the time for me! However you are right I do need to focus in being here right now and I do need to take time off to rest and recharge!03/03/2017 #19 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#17 Think about this Claire, if each of our living days is an artform then there is no weekend. The weekend only exists because we lead branded lives. When we look forward to a certain time of the week, we fast forward existence and then 50 weekends pass and we are wishing each other Happy Holidays and a New Year. Grasp this Friday as this moment, enjoy the moment of the hour we are in right now. Time is relative - for me this is a great Friday morning, for you it is 2pm in the afternoon. The evening is still young and awaiting you - have a great Friday Claire, enjoy the Friday, enjoy today :-)03/03/2017 #18 CityVP 🐝 ManjitYou have introduced me to brick-art and now having seen a pinterest page about it https://www.pinterest.com/explore/brick-art/ it is quite fascinating how something I would not associate with art can become its own canvas. I absolutely support the development of the artist within, and here I welcome works like Julia Cameron's Artist Way
Julia Cameron's work Artist Way discussed at the New Yorker
We spend more time looking at outer layers of brand and insufficient time appreciating the inner layer of creativity - I am a champion of the second because that is what is most authentic to me - the outer layer is the suit of armor we now wear because we are told to protect our brand. This is an age where the greatest need is liberating our inner being and light, and I see that here.

- Producer25/02/20171 Thinking Rationally Limits our Creativity When people do not have one or more senses they develop others. Like Helen Keller, in the picture above, who said her thinking was like a dance, with movement, energy and rhthym when with dancers at Martha Graham's dance studio. “Oh, how wonderful!...
Comments25/02/2017 #19 Deb🐝 Lange#15 Exactly, we need both - I am not throwing away the baby with the bath water! It is just for 1000's of years the prevailing focus has been on what is rational & objective - it is like being lop sided. And it is known Now but we haven't quite shifted gears! We attempt to be systemic but with a rational bias. We are still not giving credit to our sensory, intuitive, creative capacities. This requires us to be flexible and resilient and accepting - all the things we say we want.25/02/2017 #18 🐝 Fatima Williams@Deb🐝 Lange Talking about senses, my body signals me when I'm about to do something wrong or screw up at something. It's like I know I'm not supposed to be doing this. Why am I even here. A feeling in my gut uneasiness etc
All those mistakes I could have avoided had I known to read these signals and acknowledge them
Reading your book I realise that its been my body and senses talking to me. I'm left intrigued.25/02/2017 #15 Robert CormackFunny you say that, Deb. I have a friend who's a medical masseuse. Needless to say, she's touching and feeling all the time, but she absolutely loves reading. Everything I write, she comes back with a message, telling me she liked this or didn't like that. She craves creativity. I guess that's the way the pendulum swings, we need the "other side" to balance us out.#925/02/2017 #12 Deb🐝 Lange#3 @William VanDorin what a great quote, "Brilliance is the intuitive application of imagination manifested in reality by technical expertise resulting in an augmentation of our perceive reality. Rationality is subjective and limiting in it's scope.?" Thanks for reading & commenting. Let's continue the dialogue.25/02/2017 #11 Deb🐝 Lange#5 Dear @Ali Anani, have you heard of Tim Leberecht? he wrote, "The Business Romantic" I sense you will love his work. Bringing beautiful into business. I am lucky that he will be here in Australia soon with another creative Mykel Dixon. I am looking forward to the event. https://www.thebusinessromanticevent.com/#201725/02/2017 #10 Deb🐝 Lange#6 the art of dance yes. Waldorf Steiner & Howard Gardener talk about dance as an intelligence. I sense though some people see dance as something some people have and others don't. Whilst some may be born with an inherent interest and skill in one domain, I believe we all have intelligence in our movement. Start noticing how your body unconsciously moves when you speak or think about something and sense your posture, shape, movement, temperature. Sense your body moving and then muse on what your body just said to you!25/02/2017 #9 Deb🐝 Lange#7 Yes @Robert Cormack - "being creative isn't going to get us anywhere" - that has been a common belief in the past. I sense this being overturned, flipped completely upside down. To compensate working with technology I believe we are unconsciously choosing activities that bring us into the realm of the senses. I just saw a post on Linked In that said, beauticians and massage therapists in demand. Our need for touch & aesthetics being played out here.These are visceral & sensory.25/02/2017 #8 Chas ✌️ WyattYou have used quotes from one of my favorites- Einstein. "Real freedom grows in a climate of surrender and letting go. The creative spontaneity that we seek implies a simultaneous liberation from ourselves, from our ego and mundane attachments, with a growing receptivity to the deeper, more essential parts of our nature."~ David Ulrich, "The Widening Stream- the Seven Stages of Creativity".25/02/2017 #7 Robert CormackGood post, @Deb Lange. You've included one of Einstein's best quotes. In some respects, I guess we stick to script: "This is how life is, being creative isn't going to get you anywhere, why don't you get a safe job?" Thinking back, so many decisions have been based on what other people do. Why aren't I being normal? Why aren't I enjoying myself like everyone else? This is where rational thinking comes from, the idea that rational follows popular train of thought, whereas creative is somewhere off in la la land. Thanks for posting.25/02/2017 #5 Ali AnaniDear @Deb🐝 Lange- no topic attracts me like creativity and you have done a wonderful sensing of what creativity is all about. To be deprived of our senses is to lack creativity and work with only half of our brains. I share this buzz because it is so clear and outstanding

"4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails.

Comments12/01/2017 #6 CityVP 🐝 ManjitEmergence as art is always fascinating. It is interesting that the Mandelbrot set which also looks so beautiful is not its natural colour and the process of colouring is interesting in itself. The link below takes us through that :
Colouring the Mandelbrot Set
This article describes "escape time" and goes on to say :
"If we know that a particular point generates a sequence which escapes, and we know the escape time of that sequence, then we can color that point based upon its escape time. By doing this, pretty spectacular images can be created."
Colour brings home the details that would otherwise be missed in the natural black and white and adds the one quality to complexity that all humans appreciate, that of beauty.

He was apprenticed to Andrea del Verrochio in his mid teens. He learned to both paint and sculpt with a heavy concentration on the rigours of rendering the figure. He then stayed on as an assistant to Verrochio until 1478 when he started his own studio at the age of 26.28/12/2016 #10 Zacharias 🐝 VoulgarisInteresting how the individual who came up with the technique of perspective in drawing was 'just an artist' to his contemporaries, even if later on he went on to build unprecedented inventions and create the anatomical diagrams that have survived up to our time.

At 9 I chose to become a portrait painter (much to the consternation of my father!) I wanted to earn my living doing what I loved to do. And so, I was determined to be recognized for portraits by "Poulin" not by everyone who thought they could tell me how. I have therefore rarely shown a work in progress to a client. My mantra is that they chose me to do a portrait - so let "me" do the job "my" way. Otherwise, I send clients to someone else who is willing to compromise. This old buzzard isn't ready to do that yet. . . :)28/12/2016 #8 Bernard Poulin#6 Thank you Harvey. I believe in the concept of success - success as a process and not a destination or achievement. Success is not an end in itself. If I can get up in the morning and enter into a world where i am pleased to be and do - then I am one successful man.28/12/2016 #6 Harvey LloydAmateurs remind us of where we were. Those horrifying days of low confidence and minimal acceptance. But we have arrived now, we have confidence and enough of a following that we feel vindicated from the amateur title.
Amateurs are the fruit of life. We know their journey if we share a common theme of existence. The journey will be one of enlightenment, challenges and surprise victories. Every new adventure carries this cycle. The peanut gallery lurking in the shadows poking at the journey have lost their sense of adventure. They have arrived, not sure where, but they think it is a place of success.
I envy the "amateur". They have before them the (another) journey of a life time. I have pity for those who have arrived, they have parked at something that others deem as success and lost their appetite for starting new adventures or becoming an amateur again.
Great post and i enjoyed the perspective.28/12/2016 #5 Bernard Poulin#4 Agree. If only we were all happy just being who we are and doing with pleasure what we do. But in our sad day and age, we are star struck and those who do not feel like they are stars but wish to be seen so often spend a lot of time and energy trying to be seen to "be" one (a star, that is). Happiness is focusing on doing not being.28/12/2016 #4 Franci🐝Eugenia HoffmanWhat comes to mind is an amateur golfer - someone who has never turned professional or won a professional major championship.

I agree with @Aleta Curry View moreWhat comes to mind is an amateur golfer - someone who has never turned professional or won a professional major championship. IMO, that doesn't make them any less talented than a pro. I agree with @Aleta Curry where the amateur was greatly appreciated. An amateur may signify a young but extremely talented person trying to move up the ranks.
If a person is happy and proud of what they are doing, then being referred to as an amateur or an artist should not make them feel as an ordinary or lesser person. Close27/12/2016 #3 Aleta CurryExcellent, @Bernard Poulin. Interestingly, I have always moved in at least one sphere where the amateur *was* greatly appreciated: Dog Fancy (how many people make their whole living showing and breeding dogs, yet it's a respectable and multi-million dollar business), Acting (the Pantomime and Repertory system forms, though of course we now have actors with degrees disdaining those without) and even my academic disciplines, Film and History (consider the role of the amateur in Historical Recreation, Costumes, Artisans and craft skills) and now, in Antiquing - well, any antiques dealer who doesn't know that sooner or later s/he'll run into an amateur collector who knows more about the specialised field than the dealer does, is either deluded or a moron.26/12/2016 #1 Pamela 🐝 WilliamsWhat an interesting post Bernard. I see an 'art' in many of the things I do, whether it results in a painting, a story, a cold/boring dining room turned into a winter wonderland for the enjoyment of military personnel, or (and I mean this absolutely;) designing reporting metrics for the logistics department or a tracking system for a retails sales department. All these come from the same part of me. I step back and in my mind's eye I see the painting, or I watch the story unfold, or I see how to simplify an excel spreadsheet so that it can contribute to the company long after my 'contract to work' has ended. It is this inner designer's eye that allows me to turn the most mundane of tasks into my 'art'.
It is explaining this concept of 'art' that is the most difficult and most often met with those oh so frustrating smiles of tolerance. It is those 'tolerant' snobs that just don't grasp that design, is design, is design, and it all originates from the same place within the artist and the 'results' are in fact irrelevant, it is enough that it satisfies that need to 'create'. Other's definitions of 'artists' aren't really that important when the artist's 'need' is satisfied. I chose long ago to see their not understanding as being a source of amusement. I 'get it' and that's all that matters.

"The static and the dynamic are both a dance of stillness and movement in the river of time.
There is both the overlay of stillness in the movements .
And the underlying movements in the stillness.

Yup , its true !!! they do dance called the 'waggle' which at the end both fly off in different directions , the one having told the other where the sweetest nectar is to be found. So dancing is communication is it not? when we meet you will have to teach me how to dance !!!17/12/2016 #14 Sara Jacobovici#12 You definitely have an important contribution to make on beBee @Ella de Jong! So glad you came to that realization. I am not surprised it happened on @Savvy Raj's buzz. Thanks for the link.
