“Sit down. Be yourself. Be prepared. Be attentive. Defy the voices. Be the thing you want to be. Write. Be playful. Be reckless. Remember that you are uniquely designed for the idea that is moving toward you. You are good enough. The idea is about to arrive.”
— Nick Cave again
“A lively understandable spirit
Once entertained you.
It will come again.
— Theodore Roethke, “It Was Beginning Winter.”
