Thoughts on art, creativity, and the writing life.

Quote of the Day

The sculptures of Michelangelo are completed acts that endure. There was a time when they did not exist. Between their nonexistence and existence lies the creative act, which cannot be understood as a submission to the “wave of the future.” The creative act is associated with a feeling of freedom that is, in turn, born in the struggle against an apparently invincible resistance. Whoever truly creates is alone.
