My kitty B'lu has many ways to stay warm. I believe that his ability to find so many resources means that he is very smart, in spite of his little (for his body) head.

How to innovate? Look at your current work and ask how you might bring it more in synch with your vision. If you don't have a vision, keep asking yourself for one. If you ask long enough, you will receive. Ask "What could be?" This is how taste is raised, uniqueness is achieved and style is born. Get stubborn. If you happen to be one of those artists driven by curiosity, you're on your way. Innovators are lone wolves, rangy and independent. "What's the point," they ask, "in doing things like everyone else?"

This paragraph is from Robert Genn's most recent newsletter. I guess I have always been a little "outside the box" in my work. The downside, of course, is that it gets mighty lonely at times! There's also one other little matter, shopping. What happens if you want to add a glass eyeball to your piece, but don't have one? Now, me, I draw the line at making one, and the piece will have to do with something other. Every thing I have acquired makes it possible for me create as I wish. How about you?
(I wish I could always find what I need, though!)
