President's Message

Those of you who attended the October presentation by Curt Brock would understand why the following quote resonated with him…

“The secret of life is to have a task, something you devote your entire life to, something you bring everything to, every minute of every day for the rest of your life. And the most important thing is it must be something you cannot possibly do.” (Henry Moore)


Being the neo-renaissance polymath that Curt is, he knows that changing the target is key.

David Brooks, author of “The Second Mountain” alludes to this theme, in a way: “…the more progress you make towards your ideals, the more they seem to recede into the distance. As artists get better at their craft, their vision of what they are capable of dashes out even farther ahead….the ultimate joy is found not in satisfying your desires (goals)…the educated life is a journey toward a higher and higher love (of whatever you are aspiring to…art, music, etc.).

If we recall the art of Picasso, Matisse, Duchamp, etc., we see a certain movement in direction, experimentation, a target shift. Contemplate the quotes to see how they resonate with you.

See you at the November AGTV meeting and let me know if you will join us for lunch at Thai Bistro so reservations can be made in advance. Bob Meadows creates books that are gems.

Be sure to sign up for classes and workshops as you attend the monthly meetings. Workshops tend to fill very quickly.
