"In a knot of eight crossings which is about the average size knot, there are 256 different over and under arrangements possible...Make only one change in this over and under sequence and either an entirely different knot is made or no knot at all will result." The Ashley Book of Knots
Carol and I recently discussed the 'artspeak' version of the old adage - "if a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?." If art is created and no one sees it 'does it exist?' or 'should it exist?' I think I have long exhausted the "I am doing it for myself" theory. If one person is moved by a work is that the same as 50 or 100 moved? We concluded (maybe we had to ) that one is enough. Now I have to convince myself that I really believe that. No matter - I'm working again! This year I am trying for two!
