"The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves."

David Kelley: How to build your creative confidence

Friends

we who are
your closest friends
feel the time
has come to tell you
that every Thursday
we have been meeting
as a group
to devise ways
to keep you
in perpetual uncertainty
frustration
discontent and
torture
by neither loving you
as much as you want
nor cutting you adrift

your analyst is
in on it
plus your boyfriend
and your ex-husband
and we have pledged
to disappoint you
as long as you need us

in announcing our
association
we realize we have
placed in your hands
a possible antidote
against uncertainty
indeed against ourselves
but since our Thursday nights
have brought us
to a community of purpose
rare in itself
with you as
the natural center
we feel hopeful you
will continue to make
unreasonable
demands for affection
if not as a consequence
of your
disastrous personality

then for the good of the collective

- Philip Lopate

What I Learned at the The Image Deconstructed Workshop

I am far more compassionate towards a stranger’s uncertainty and fear than I am to own.

"

The most important thing is playing and creating. Everything else is secondary.

Work is a family affair. It’s important to shelter, support and share with a larger community.

Money is second fiddle to living the kind of life you want to live. You can build your own economy.

There are pitfalls to being a renegade but they come with the territory. Accept the hazards and finger-pointing as a small hindrance of living differently.

Push the envelope whenever possible.
