Hello!

Yesterday was a big day for a lot of us as many headed back to school and those of us getting back to work faced a new day, week, month and season all at once. As we all delve into the dizzying pace of daily life, it’s important to slow down every once in a while and perhaps even do something fun.

Tonight, after I get all my work done, I plan to watch a funny movie. So my question today is…

In your opinion, what is the funniest movie ever made?

Please let us know in the comments below (or share over Twitter & Facebook) and be sure to take a look at the awesome list of job opportunities below.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

I have great respect for mentors and their value to those who they pass their knowledge and experience on to. I’m always looking for new mentors myself when it comes to my creative craft and business practices, and I love helping others establish similar relationships.

So today my question is…

If you could be mentored by anyone throughout history, who would it be?

I’d love to hear your answer below after you check out the great list of job opportunities on today’s list.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

Yesterday I mentioned an old co-worker of mine who couldn’t understand why I would read a book multiple times. When I tried to explain, I compared it with re-watching favourite movies, which he couldn’t understand either. 

I asked what books you re-read, but today I’d love to know…

What movies do you watch over and over again?

It would be great to see your answers in the comments below. But first, be sure to check out the awesome list of job opportunities I have for you today.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

I asked two question over the last couple of days (here & here) and got a great response.

Check them out:

.

What is the role of art? Is it different than the role of the artist?

“The role of art is to exist. Challenge, question, support, beautify, testify, et cetera. Not even the artist can guarantee what it will be. Too many factors… Time, culture, politics, history; it’s all organic.” - Mat Calverley

“The role of art is to inspire, explore and illuminate the truth.” - Brittney Francis

“provoke fun, thought & interest. Without art, life would be dull.The role of the artist is to create & share with the world.” - Nav Sehambhi

“The role of art is to uplift people’s spirits. The role of the artist is to attain artistic perfection.” - LorraineHétuManifold

“‘protect the origins of language and culture’” - karhiio

.

What is the role of the artist?

“create a pathway to experience.” - dsharpdavis

“”The Role of the artist is to make their own stylized comment on the state of humanity”" - Natalia Knowlton

“the role of the artist is to suspend time, even if just for a moment.” - Jacqueline Woods

“the role of the artist is to evoke, invoke and provoke” - Bartlett Gallery

“the artist is there to express themselves through their art and allow others to relate” - Staverous Cardini

“…poke into the edges we haven’t gone into or dare not go into.” - Maggie Shirley

“The role of the artist is to fill in the blank.” - Peggy MacKinnon

“connect” - Appy Aparnski

(We had many, many more answers, so I couldn’t include them all in this post).

Do you agree/disagree with any of the above? Have thoughts of your own on the subject? Be sure to let us know in the comments below after you’ve taken a look at the awesome list of job opportunities I have for you today.

Have a wonderful day!
