Duke Ellington had it right when he wrote it dont mean a thing if it aint got that swing. I feel that for art to have meaning, it must come from deep inside the marrow of your body and soul – you should be feel the artists blood coursing through your veins, and be moved by their passions as well as be engaged by their intellect. Art at its best is a shared experience of engaging in mystery, in wonder. As to arts source, who knows? The late great Dr. Suess was once asked where he got his ideas. He replied …once a year, every August, I hike into the desert near Carajo, Arizona and spend a week picking the brain of a Retired Thunderbird. Where he gets his ideas, I have no idea whatsoever.
