The secret doorway

As most of you know I tend to explore the realms of TED and sometimes I feel very much connected with the people on stage and have the urge to share it with you here.

When I heard Mac explain his professional job is to lie to children and instantly continued with a quote of Pablo Picasso, my interest was spiked.

“We all know that Art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize truth at least the truth that is given us to understand. The artist must know the manner whereby to convince others of the truthfulness of his lies.” 

Pablo Picasso

I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

I went into the cupboard and looked for the secret door.
I found a long lost brick.

So, go and check under the bed for the green monsters and dinosaurs and check that cupboard for the secret doorway to your fantasy world.

Let us know what you found !

  1. Just catching up on all the posts I have missed and indeed I walked through a special door myself :
    Some weeks ago I went downtown to a rather posh place where you can probably get most everything money can buy. It was my first time there but I intended to meet a man who was going to be there to promote an alcoholic drink from a brand that he invented.
    I actually queued up for two hours (or more?) just to be able to buy a (crazy shaped) bottle of that drink at a ridiculously high price and then sit on a chair next to the man and having him scribbling something that one can´t read on that expensive bottle, shaking his hand and getting a pic of him and me with my phone.
    He was there under a false name but I knew his true identity. For a second I almost believed him pretending to be someone else. But when I left the place through the front DOOR I knew I had just met Elwood Blues. He probably gave a wrong name as the Chicago police or FBI was still after him. Still after all those years...
