The good-enough story

We are accustomed to looking at objects.  We need to become accustomed to seeing spaces between and around objects as if they, too, were solid.  Seeing spaces can free us from deadly assumptions.  Spaces can help us understand where connections are made.*
(Corita Kent)

One of the ways Corita Kent would encourage her art students to draw a chair was by drawing the spaces.  These are part of chairness, too.  This illustrates how the unseen spaces between the things we often notice about ourselves are also who we are, part of our stories, making our stories more than good-enough.
