Now is the time…
Now is the time for total humility and absolute improvisation within the arts and humanities. All mediums are required. I am a humble absorber of NPR and have simply decided, at this moment, to contact the site. Now is the time? The time is now (albeit for centuries) for not only subversive creative expression, but a complete disregard for validation within one’s lifetime. Yes, nearly all creative people seek motive, inspiration and legacy-‘ambition’ to succeed. The great Emily Dickinson had it about right. Despite her father being a governor, most academics would agree her work was not seduced by an overwhelming need for recognition. Should not all artists be bound to a similar principle nowadays? Now is the time to make work, but not sell it. LIVE IT. There are very few of us remaining. Thank you
