selected purposefully

During the course of my adult life, curators went from being lofty people who work in museums to hip people who select, interpret, and edit almost anything. 

Curator: from the latin curare meaning to care for, 
to attend to.

A curator is a manager or an overseer. 
Nearly everyone can lay claim to the title, Curator.

I have been thinking about the creativity of curating... and the things I curate in my life... the way I sift and sort and purposefully select.  I am as much about what I include as I am about what I leave out.

Artist Raghava KK's most recent TED talk sums up curating beautifully:

"Creativity is the most important tool we have. It lets us create who we are and curate what is to come."
