I'm still writing, writing, writing for my online Art of Botanical Perfume course. Today I realized the challenge getting these modules and lessons done, is that as I translate them from a live course to one online I find more interesting bits to include. I'm tumbling further and further down the rabbit hole of Alchemy, and wow it sure smells good here, I don't want to leave.
It's a problem from the point of finishing up the course, but not so much as an artist. Today, during my wonderings in the deep caverns of the rabbit hole I came across the word epistemology, which is a branch of philosophy that investigates the origin, nature, methods, and limits of human knowledge."1 Ah-hah...I must be an epistemologist! I thought I was an artist, no a perfumer, no wait, an alchemist, no a magician, no wait....
"Art is, like magic, the science of manipulating symbols,
words, or images, to achieve changes in consciousness."
