Thoughts on art, creativity, and the writing life.

Quote of the Day

Ralph Richardson, whom I saw give at least three great performances, in theater and film, used a completely auditory, musical system. During rehearsals of Long Day’s Journey Into Night, he asked a simple question. Forty-five minutes later I finished my answer. (I talk a lot.) Ralph paused a moment and then sonorously said, “I see what you mean, dear boy: a little more cello, a little less flute.”
