The Centipede's Dilemma

In a recent visit to Berwyn, Lois Hetland spoke with art teacher, Andrea Siegler, about applying the Studio Thinking Framework to her own practice. Within this conversation, Hetland references a poem called, "The Centipede's Dilemma" to illustrate the painfulness of getting stuck in one's purpose.

A centipede was happy quite,
Until a frog in fun
Said, "Pray, which leg comes after which?"
This raised her mind to such a pitch,
She lay distracted in the ditch
Considering how to run.
