ethos and this Lunar New Year
a couple of days ago i listened to Terry Gross (NPR) interviewing David Remnick, editor of the New Yorker. i had been pondering the question of wider availability for flying noir chocolate, and what that would mean -
would i need to simplify or streamline the artistic process, lower my standards in any way? i was totally captivated when Remnick described a fabled copy editor's prowess, e.g. once finding 4 errors in a 3 word sentence, linking it to the high standards at the magazine as an "ethos of high attention". here was my answer! i googled the phrase and found reference to Aristotle 's three artistic proofs: ethos, pathos and logos.
yes again! a comprehensive focus…so
my course must always include the same obsessive attention to detail, the absorptive practice that enables creative flow, because this is where you must be when the magic man comes along, the joy in working well makes me whistle, and results are good.
now this may seem pretentious for mere bonbons, yet happiness in what you do makes all the difference, etc., etc. etc…

How inspiring! Aristotle and David Remnick would be pleased to read this, and we in the Bay Area are lucky to share in the product of your obsession.
