Art and Imagination
Over the last few months and weeks, while I’ve been engaging myself in a book release, promotions, and guerilla marketing for my new book, STOCK MARKET BASEBALL, I find myself coming back full circle to those pursuits, and activities that interest me the most, and that give me the most fun, joy, and satisfaction. The arts. I can’t escape it. I love music and art, and the imagination of men and women who create .
I’ve become more active with Google+, as an avenue to present myself, and my work, to persons with similar interests in the markets, trading, art, theater, and music, but I find myself loving to spend most of that time with lovers of art and culture, from all over the world. I seem to have most in common with the men and women who enjoy sharing photos, and stories, jokes, and artwork from decades long gone by, from places like Germany, France, Italy, England, and the American Midwest. While I also make connections with people who share my interest in technical chart analysis , and trading, and while the information exchanged is interesting, and useful, I find myself much more interested in discovering some long forgotten photo of a silent film star, or model, long since passed, or some visual kaleidoscope played with by children in Germany more than 100 years ago. The touch of humanity in the arts, and invention, is what lives on, and what gives life to the arts in the first place. It’s that shared humanity, imagination, humor, and sense of wonder, that I truly appreciate.
