What is an Artist? What are you?

We are always talking ourselves out of the creative impulses that give joy, meaning and purpose to our lives. I had never heard of Young-ha Kim before today. Perhaps that is because he is a famous Korean author and I don't read Korean novels much at all.

He speaks at G4 network speed, which is to say very fast, though the subtitles appear at a reasonable rate. And they are very much worth reading as he chastises us away from being dull and intrigues us with what it means to create, to express, to explore. One of his more profound statements...get up, turn off the TV, unplug from the internet, and go make something. Indeed.
