A question

I came across this postcard on the PostSecret site that reads: “If I can do it, I don’t consider it art.”

I realized that I kind of think that way, too. I figure if I record a song, it’s not art, it’s just something I threw together in the studio. If I take a nice looking photograph, I just got lucky. If I get a smiley face to appear in my oil and vinegar mixture, it’s happenstance. Do you hold that true for yourself, too?

Maybe we’re all just too hard on ourselves. I think the rule should be that if one other person can call it art, then art it is.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
