I saw this video a few weeks ago and just love it. Jason Silva explains what awe is, and why it is important.
I makes me think of when I'm throwing ink, and that moment when the image pierces through my unconscious and into my conscious mind in a moment of inspiration and recognition. I watch in awe as something forms itself in front of me. And although the moment lasts only a second, I can feel the echo for days as I think about the piece and how excited I am to enhance it and show it to others.
Check out the video, it's short, but it packs a wallop!
