Some of us choose to work within the (as yet, thankfully BOUNDLESS)
Artists/Books can of worms precisely because of the utterly refreshing
elusiveness of a set of defining LIMITATIONS.
Reading all these postings is fun, but it also makes me think of what happens
to beautiful working dogs (Collies, Irish Setters) when the breed becomes
registered and standardized. They become instantly recognizable, and though
they retain some beauty and functional traits, but the brains and the heart
(which made them so admirable) are gone.
Let's hear it for the ol' "continuously evolving genre".
