I am in awe.

Had the price of looking been blindness, I would have looked.  ~Ralph Ellison, “Battle Royal”

How might this world be if we all took our imaginations seriously?  What would happen if we followed through on what might otherwise seem like a harebrained idea and took it to completion, regardless of the naysayers.

Janet Echelman looked at the world with an open mind and ended up creating the extraordinary from the most common and practical of materials – ethereal, billowing sculpture from fishing net.  I can’t get over the beauty that has emanated from her imagination.  Enjoy.

About Chris DeVinney

Me in a nutshell: mom, writer, former lobbyist, wife, volunteer, lover of music and art, massive fan of traveling, and something of a smart ass. A typical INTJ, I quietly observe anyone and anything that comes into my orbit, squirreling away material for future essays. These days I spend my time writing about whatever interests me (both professionally and personally) and trying to strike the balance between taking care of kids/family/house/pets and me. Occasionally I nail it, hang on to it briefly, and then scramble back toward the center when the tipping starts again. I know, it’s a common story.
