I am not sure I’d like to have a little chat with Mona Lisa or want her to wave out to me like some movie star. This is not about purity in art but about purity in ways of seeing. Rather than humanising, it becomes robotic. Beijing’s Alive Gallery is doing just that. It has got a whole series of...

One of the themes of my book, Torn by God: A Family's Struggle with Polygamy, is that people who are in the position of speaking for God are in a position of great power.

1.  When you have a writing project to do, a thousand distractions suggest themselves.       Now you must write the story of the thousand distractions. 2. Weeds are flowers that grow too easily. 3.  The reason most people abhor silence is that it forces them to listen to themselves.

Once, when I discovered some people finding it difficult to comprehend a poem I had written, it set me thinking. At that time a line had come to mind: His shadow loomed over my naked body.What could this mean? Several things, mainly the obvious. But for me it was a simple reality...I was in the...

I was speaking to someone who recently read a study regarding the influence of expectation on the performance of students and teachers in grade school. Three teachers were selected for the study and they were told that in the coming year that they would be receiving students who were gifted....
