This powerful photo of hunks of clay by Gentl and Hyers made us wonder: What are we going to make today? And then we found this in Free Play: Improvisation in Life and Art:

Look at whatever is in front of you and say, “Yes! Yes! Yes!” to it…The universe of possibilities becomes visible, tangibly larger, over a period of mere moments. When you say, “No, No, No,” the world gets smaller and heavier. Try it both ways and verify the truth of this very simple method.”
