Creative response becomes an act of regard, respect, reciprocity, reverence. Perhaps making art is more important than ever because it offers another way to slow down. Perhaps our art is only evidence, occasionally beautiful evidence, of a willingness not only to look but to see with our eyes and hands and hearts, to listen and hear with an ear to the earth.
