The accidental artist – part two

One kind of creative perception is always willing to take coincidence seriously and weave it into the design of things.*
(Lewis Hyde)

Opening yourself up to the world, to new experiences and themes and inputs, will push you to a new place. And that push? That’s growing.**
(Hugh Macleod)

The thing that’s distracting you may be just the thing you need to notice.

It could be something physical, a thought, a feeling … .

Why not pay it some more attention and see where it wants to take you?

(*From Lewis Hyde’s Trickster Makes This World.)
