Art is Beautiful
Art is not about thinking something up. It is about the opposite-getting something down. The directions are important here.
If we are trying to think something up, we are straining to reach for something that’s just beyond our grasp, “up there, in the stratosphere, where art lives on high…”
When we get something down, there is no strain. We’re not doing; we’re getting. Someone or something else is doing the doing. Instead of reaching for inventions, we are engaged in listening.
if you can’t dance well.
Just get up and dance.
Great dancers are not great
because of their technique,
they are great because of
I got soul but I’m not a soldier
It is not the question, what am I going to be when I grow up; you should ask the question, who am I going to be when I grow up.
