Wrestling with the Oblique by Ashley Jean Nelson
Oblique Codes of SELF promotion
"When promoting your work for instance, you should not promote it directly or explicitly but do so obliquely, and pretend that you are doing something quite different. This feigning insouciance, this sprezzatura, is a social code and class marker with a cost: it blinkers insiders and makes them resist the power of direct expression."
"It all started with a single vibration, a drop of ghee, and the divine union of Shiva & Shakti... this is about creation, exploration, artistic process and self-expression disguised as a yoga class schedule on the internet, this is about the universe, this is about me and my response to the yoga selfie. This is not about the business of yoga, or is it?"
