Creating with blessed unrest
That Martha Grahm quote is one of my FAVORITES. I think about it all the time, so when I saw the title of this newsletter, I was delighted to find the full quote included. So many gems of wisdom in this whole piece. Always enjoy these showing up in my inbox. ^_^
You convinced me in this piece. I want satisfaction in my life so much that when you pose the value of dis, it rubs me slightly off. But I think you're right. The lingering off-sync with life keeps us wanting to correct the rhythm and speak to the rhythm and find meaning on the off-synchness. (how's that for a word?) To put it spiritually, we are not home, this is not heaven, we are a fallen people, and art is all about feeling that separateness and railing against that disjointedness and making sense of the off-synchness. (there, twice!)
I cannot tell you how much I LOVE the Nick Cave quote! My exact sentiments.
