Historically speaking, the bigger the genius artist, the more the critics try to tear them apart. Critics- as much as they suck- signal success!
Don’t let criticism stop you in your tracks. Here’s a little formula for overcoming criticism that really works…! xoxo Dana

Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream Speech” is a gift. And no matter how many times I hear his speech over the radio or on the television, I’m moved and inspired. It never gets old.
But, it’s always nice to have a bit of creative inspiration infuse a classic speech. And this video from SALT retelling the concluding four minutes of Dr. King’s speech does just that. You hear young and old, black and white, male and female recite Dr. King’s moving words in English and Spanish. It’ll inspire you too.
I encourage you to share it with your closest friends and newest colleagues. And, I’ll echo a question put to us by Elizabeth Myer Boulton, the creative director behind the film:
How far have we come on the journey to social justice and what must be done to achieve the dream King so eloquently articulated in 1963?
Human Organs Created from Flora
English artist Camila Carlow created these lovely renderings of human organs by foraging for wild plants, weeds, and the occasional animal part and then sculpting and arranging these various bits of flora. Her series, entitled “Eye ‘Heart’ Spleen,” represents images of organs such as a heart, lungs, stomach, uterus, liver, and testicles, demonstrating the reflection of internal biological structures with external natural structures. From Carlow’s site,
“This work invites the viewer to regard our vital structures as beautiful living organisms, and to contemplate the miraculous work taking place inside our bodies, even in this very moment.”
