Asking Great Questions!
I think it was Alber Einstein that gave the advice about asking great questions. The ideas was that if the question was right then the answers would follow - 95% of the time and effort should go into asking the question.
One of my favourite questions is to ask 'What is art?' my next favourite question is to ask 'What question did I ask these people that I met in Finland recently?'
I invite you to answer either question :-)

Nice post David! Off the top of my head, I think you asked them either 'what is work' or 'what is art'. To answer the latter off the top of my head, I would say that art is an extremely wide definition to encompass creativity, thought and physical objects. A quick Google tells me that the definition is 1. The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power. 2. Works produced by such skill and imagination. I think this a huge and fascinating question though - as is, 'what is work'. Thanks for the mental work out as usual and look forward to another philosophy friday soon.Reply to comment
