For this round my partner (shown in this post!) and I each blogged on the same theme. Check out his post, “Inside the Mathematician’s studio” here.
I’m quite mad for this. I particularly love work spaces and I’m always asking people to take pictures of their work spaces–so this hits deep in. I’m working with a lot of texts exactly about this Anna. This is so gorgeous.
It’s true, it’s seductive to see inspiration as 100% inscrutable. But I kind of think it’s even more romantic to understand it as the unpredictable-in-the-short-term-but-predictable-in-the-long-term byproduct of what you called practiced craft. Like flowers growing from tilled soil, or something. I find that idea both beautiful and empowering.
In other news, I don’t think I’ve officially put on record my views on the utter awesomeness of this blog so let me do that now.
Utterly awesome, Anna.
Thanks so much for sharing your feedback and highly blush-worthy praise, Ben! Have you checked out Ben II’s parallel post on the mathematician’s process (? I was especially thinking that you would find his explication interesting.
Utter awesomeness indeed. And Ben’s too. Amazing amazing woman.
I totally feel the part where you say it’s hard to know where inspiration comes from. But this is lovely and inspired.
