Chocolate Kiss, 2018

Related to my postings on mindful studio practice, I sometimes read renowned writer Maria Popova's work (my previous mentions here). In her piece about "Thoreau on the Hubris of Our Knowledge and the Transcendent Humility of Not-Knowing," she writes, "Thoreau’s chief concern is the hubris that knowledge breeds, to which conscious not-knowing offers a counterpoint of humility:

Thoreau: 'My desire for knowledge is intermittent, but my desire to bathe my head in atmospheres unknown to my feet is perennial and constant.'" [Source]
