This is my main blog and contains just as much frippery as fact, but feel free to join me anyway. You can also find me at Facebook, and Twitter, or you can visit my website.

There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. If you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not yours to determine how good it is; nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. No artist is ever pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction; a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.

~Martha Graham to Agnes De Mille

Every secret of a writer's soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind is written large in his works.
