Taking flight

The trouble with art -- as with life -- is that it's so irrational, so unpredictable. Who could predict that a photographer whose subjects are commonly boats and barns would be so drawn to a gas museum? Why would a seasoned photographer suddenly switch to abstract painting?  Why does a daily blogger and poet suddenly choose to write a play? Unpredictability makes people uncomfortable, wary. People who follow their instincts, who listen to some voice larger or more deep-seated than the crowd might prove dangerous...

So.  How will that unpredictable creativity of yours take flight today?
