Looking beneath the surface

There’s always something just below the surface, the elements that most people simply don’t notice. But we can if we choose.*
Seth Godin

If we stick to the letter of the law, we don’t have to think. Because there’s risk involved in thinking. There’s nowhere to hide if it goes wrong. But real creativity often comes with risk. So don’t just blindly follow the words themselves.**
Dave Trott

Why do you want to do this?
If I look beneath the surface,
What will I find?

To serve a work of art,
greater or small, is to die,
to die to self.^
