Art.Basel.Miami Beach --- Day 337

Walk: Mindful Body
Distance: 8 blocks and teach two yoga classes

I was talking to an artist-student-friend today after class, and she was telling me about Art Basel Miami Beach being the worst of things art and, for her, the best.  The worst for her was the wild abundance of the art and the rabid collecting by so many stretched, lifted faces in spandex and mink.  The best she felt was that it set her free. She has felt inhibited by wanting to appeal to buyers, but now that she has witnessed them in droves she feels released.  "Just practice" was the message that came to her.  Just go to her studio and make art as it comes to her.  Just practice like she does yoga, let it emerge at its own pace with its own voice.  Whether it will speak to anyone is beside the point.
