uses of art –

(adapted from Jane Hirshfield)

  • A work of art is not a piece of fruit lifted from a branch: it is a ripening collaboration of artist, receiver, and world.
  • Art is not an outer event or phenomenon, nor is it the feeling or insight it may seem to reveal or evoke. Art may involve both, but is, more complexly, a living fabrication of new comprehension –  the bringing of something new into being.
  • Art lean toward increase of meaning, feeling, and being.

one way art may be useful is by showing how thin usefulness is …

Sometimes, quite often to be honest, I feel my life as a writer is centered around the concept of endeavoring. I get up in the morning, I go to my desk, I write, I fail, I start over … nothing changes

– everything can

    Endeavor is a great word–I love the sound of it.
