If there is one thing that unites people, it's art. Whether the art is music, illustrations, poetry, crossword puzzles, or other mediums, it is the dream of artists to touch the hearts of others. I find it interesting how this week's 15x ultimately came together. I had the crossword finished on Tuesday, but after hearing about the passing of 6/7-Down, I redid the upper right section of the puzzle to fit them into my grid. Their writings and illustrations were some of the first art I was exposed to as a kid, so today, I wanted to pay homage to them. I believe everyone is an artist and that everyone can create something wonderful for this world.
