Living Art

Late afternoon light filtering through our deck cover onto the windows. It's an interesting play on light and distortion and line. 4/20/2007

How would you react if during your daily commute talented musicians suddenly burst into song on your subway train?

Would you reluctantly respond? Turn away? Or start dancing? (me? I hope I'd start dancing...).

This was one of three examples of Beauty in Banal Settings that Sue Pelletier of the MeetingsNet blog wrote about this week. Though she aims her contemplation points at meeting planners and speakers, her suggestions apply to us all (emphasis mine):

Think about settings, think about audience, think about expectations, think about context, think about surprise, and think about how what you can do to bring beauty that in turn will bring delight to your attendees.
