You have to look at things more than one way.

“You really don’t understand something if you only understand it one way.” Marvin Minsky said this. Minsky, the visionary computer scientist at MIT, died yesterday. This notion is so applicable across the board from science to politics to art. A painter turns a painting upside down and sees something totally new in what she is doing that impacts the piece. I rarely talk about works in progress but right now I am turning a story inside out and re-writing it and finding startling things.

Upside down photo is by my husband!
