Through twitter, I found a blog that embedded the following video clip that spells out why we must not continue to cut funding to arts education. They are essential for creativity and for our capacity as human beings and not mere data processors.

It also explains why the musician friends I know are multi-lingual. Pick up a musical instrument when you’re young and open your world to a tonal propensity for foreign languages. Take art classes and develop your spacial intelligence.

As one of the earliest bloggers (since 1999), I enjoy meeting people who embrace "out-of-the-box" thinking and fear not the unknown. I believe in collaboration for sustainability because it increases stakeholder value.
