Fryderyk Chopin




"Simplicity is the highest goal, achievable when you have overcome all difficulties.  After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art."

















Fryderyk Chopin


Polish Composer/Pianist


1810 - 1849











Have you achieved simplicity in your artistic works?  Or is your work full of complex, paradoxical ideas?  I have been accused of making things too simple — of boiling down complicated ideas to the simplest of ideas.  Writing haiku for seven years taught me a lot about simplicity.  Simplicity does not mean dumb or stupid or ignorant.  Sometimes the most brilliant ideas can be expressed in a few simple words.  Sometimes wisdom can be conveyed in a single brush stroke of black ink or a few notes on a piano. 





Take a break and relax to this piece by Chopin.  It may release your creative juices.
