Writing


First, I do not sit down at my desk to put into verse something that is already clear in my mind. If it were clear in my mind, I should have no incentive or need to write about it. We do not write in order to be understood; we write in order to understand.
Robert Cecil Day-Lewis

that's so true. it really is a way to find understanding for ourselves. as drawing and any ind of art, in a different way. great match Thinker.

I agree, writing and art in general gives us a chance to dive into ourselves and explore.
Glad you like the match!

This quote is so true. My understanding of why I create the art I do was enhanced by having to write about it.

I'm enjoying this blog.
