I do believe in poetry. I believe that words are creatures endowed with the power to put things together and bring them back to life.
"This means to me: a poetic engagement with space, time and matter through (physical) movements and words."
in my experience, the process of creation is both the act of paying exquisite attention to the world outside of you, and that internal process of tending to your inner world, planting beautiful things, one seed at a time – until one day, you’ll look inside youself and see that you’ve created your own kingdom, your own refuge, your infinite pool of strength – such that no matter where you are, no matter what happens in the world outside of you, your relationship to your creative instinct – and all that you create from it – will be the one thing that will always hold you, and make this one life feel more meaningful, more beautiful, and more worth living.
“Living life as an artist is a practice.
You are either engaging in the practice
or you’re not.
It makes no sense to say you’re not good at it.
It’s like saying, “I’m not good at being a monk.”
You are either living as a monk or you’re not.
We tend to think of the artist’s work as
The real work of the artist
is a way of being in the world.”
