Are you an artist?

"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up" - Pablo Picasso.

Gordon MacKenzie points out in his book Orbiting the Giant Hairball that if you ask a kindergarten class how many of them are artists, they'll all raise their hands. Ask the same question of 6th graders, and maybe one third will respond. Ask high school grads, and few will admit to it. What happens to us growing up? We begin to fear criticism, and tend to keep our creativity to ourselves. (from 1000 journals)

I love the 1000 journals project. What a great idea! I saw a documentary about it on TV ages ago and only just thought to look it up on the internet.  It gets me thinking of lots of ideas too! If you like projects there are some great sites full of ideas.  If I ever have the time to get bored I might do some of them but as it is there is not much spare time.  Oh well, one day......

Why is this stuck in the middle?
