Aesthetic Moment: The Creative Life
Posted on January 10 2021
Some way the creative life is in ideas, some say it is in doing. It seems in most instances to be a simply being. It is not virtuosity, although that is very fine in itself. It is the love of something, having so much love for something – whether a person, a word, an image, an idea, the land, or humanity – that all that can be done with the overflow is to create. It is not a matter of wanting to, not a singular act of will, one solely must. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, from Women who Run with the Wolves.
