Sometimes to change how we think we must look from a new perspective. Irritation makes us move away from our comfortable way of looking and our comfortable way of creating art. A movie like The Graduate or a book like The Grapes of Wrath stimulates us - irritates us, in a way to become part of a conversation, with others and within ourselves, about who, how, why, where, and when we are.
