The Private Writing and Art of Alex Singer

I ask myself as a writer and artist, what is it about the combination of “arts and letters” that is so powerful? Why is it that when we see words next to a work of art by the artist, we are comforted in knowing that a level of intimacy and honesty is being offered that […]

Calling All Introverts!

  Where can you find introverts who can’t stop talking to each other? Genesis art workshops–of course! Artists and other instinctively creative people tend to be introverts.

What do Israelis gain by delving into Japanese culture?

Israelis, I’m discovering fast, have a lot to teach me about the nation and the culture I lived amongst for thirty years. I choose my words carefully when I say “amongst.” To live with the Japanese traditions day in and out with the goal of perfecting one of their classic art forms is something that […]
