Mark Miller

I went to an interesting talk by Professor and jazz musician Mark Miller. It was sponsored by the Program in Creativity and Consciousness Studies at the University of Michigan. It was about using meditation in jazz and how jazz can be meditation. It was inspiring for me even though I play no instruments. I'll use some of the ideas in my painting.

Question: Is this alive or is it dead?
Explore: Sense perceptions, emotions, thought, imagination
An affirmation of life with whatever is here, now
Prime directive: serve the painting
