A piece that is open, surprising, satisfying, and speaks in unscripted ways is better for being that way.
I’ve often realized the power of artistic trust. There is wonder and whimsy in abundance when I don’t plan and plot and iron all the mystery out of art.
Poetry is the creative build, the dance between the inner world outside of ourselves and our own inner being. Art is concretely realizing this dance in a sharing manner. A beautiful mystery may come from that dance. Mystery growing in the light that gleams through the fitting, the interfacing of poetry and art. And when there are gaps, cracks, an imperfect fitting – the mysterious light generated by poetry and art can be an alchemical wonder.
