A Quote Worth Sharing

“The details of any art form—how to play the violin, how to improvise a raga, how to write English prose, how to make movies, how to teach are of course particular; each instrument or medium comes with its own language and lore.  But there is a kind of metalearning, a metadoing that transfers across styles and forms…While there are certain principles that apply to a particular field, others apply across the board to all fields of creative activity.  Any action can be practiced as an art, as a craft, or as drudgery.”

– Free Play: Improvisation in Life and Art, Stephen Nachmanovitch
