Took part in an enjoyable and thought-provoking workshop given by Henry Threadgill last night at the Jazz Gallery. Very inspiring guy to be around. His ideas about art, self-propulsion, collectivity, form, rhythm, etc left me with lots to think about. While giving him a ride home his words re: artists paying their bills in advance so they can have unfettered time to create, "to daydream, to look at leaves, at sticks..." were particularly poignant. Thanks Henry.
