When I first began this blog it was with the intention to nurture connections I already had and to motivate me to connect with the world in new ways in order to share it here. Yesterday I was the beneficiary of an unexpected connection through blogging. I received a comment to yesterday's entry from John M, an art history professor at Oregon State University. He has set up a blog, Tesserae, on which his students can initiate a discussion or contribute to existing ones. I love this idea. In about 15 minutes of reading and following links I found several blogs that I have added to my bloglines subscription and sites I have bookmarked. One is the website of Vik Muniz who creates art using sugar, chocolate and other unusual media then photographing the results. Another site found on Tesserae is Learning to Love You More. Check out all three and enjoy!
