Currie's Gratitude 12 November 2014

For an artist is not a consumer, as our commercials urge us to be. An artist is a nourisher and a creator who knows that during the act of creation there is collaboration. We do not create alone.    [Madeleine L'Engle]

The best part of Life is DOing and BEing what we’re curious about DOing or considering BEcoming. It doesn’t come all at once, we have to BEgin from wherever we are. We’re following something we canNOT name or put our arms round, but we know we’re DOing the whatever it is we’re meant to BE DOing in this moment.

Stop being self-conscious when you write.
You are the expert about the world you are creating,
no one else. So be bold and write on.
 [Nirav Sanchaniya]

I’m noticing that I am curious about what I have created, what I have written and made, and yet I feel strange about going back and reading or seeing it. I think it is BEcause I have been changed by writing and making my art, and going back is, well, it’s like seeing all my flaws and missteps under the harshness of cold flourescent lighting.

Creating is no problem - problem solving is not creating.   [Robert Fritz, Path of Least Resistance: Learning to Become the Creative Force in Your Own Life]


I love you, Currie
