"An artist is a soul training its body and mind to get out of the way."
This expresses to me what our job is as artists - to clear the pathway and connect fully to the channel. If you listen to Jeremy Sole on KCRW or been in the room when he's DJing live, then you know that he is masterful in this practise.
This little Picasso on display at LACMA feels like another expression of the same idea - I couldn't feel any distance between the artist and the art here. Beauty.
Happy birthday week and gratitude to J. Sole for letting me share this quote!
For some reason, I've gone all in on NaPoWriMo - will be posting poems and prompts here daily - check in!
