... engage

I am reengaging this blog ... and I hope others will too. I'm posting those things which privilege art and the thinking that goes on around art. So much distracts from this, it seems appropriate that there be spaces like this where this is the only focus. So links, resources, musings ... Saul Ostrow sent me a link to Tom Huhn's recommended reading list. It's a monthly list that you can subscribe to ... the readings are awesome. I wish I had more time to spend with them.
