Hangin' Out

I'm in Yellowknife, North West Territories doing a workshop on Great Slave Lake. I got up early to do some marking and found ways to procrastinate by reading Robert Genn's bi- weekly newsletter. This is a quote I found interesting "The only thing that makes one an artist is making art. And that requires the precise opposite of hanging out; a deeply lonely and unglamorous task of tolerating oneself long enough to push something out." (David Rakoff)
Here is a couple of my students hangin' out. I wonder if after graduation when it is the lonely task of making art that separates those that do and those that need to hang out.
I'll go for a walk this morning and get some pics of The Knife. This is the farthest north I've ever been.
