So, on a crisp, colorful autumn Sunday I took myself off to the Guggenheim….a yearly pilgrimage.

Agnes Martin (1912-2004), who devoted herself to “grids and stripes”, occupied every Guggenheim spiral—rare artistry indeed!

I gazed and pondered and reflected, placing myself in her pale grey lines; squinting and breathing and connecting…..yet,

It was only when I read her words….

“That which takes us by surprise…moments of happiness…that is inspiration….Inspiration is an untroubled mind.”

….that I began to see…

I may never understand her painting, but I do understand her passion.
