You have to systematically create confusion, it sets creativity free.
Everything that is contradictory creates life.
~ Salvador Dalí
The only way you can write is by the light of the bridges burning behind you.
~ Richard Peck
Here, where the old ways are crumbling and you may be tempted to burn down your own house.
Ask instead for an introduction to that which endures. This place without a foothold is the province of grace.
It is the questing field, most responsive to magic and fluent in myth. Here, where there is nothing left to lose, sing out of necessity that your ragged heart be heard.
Send out your holy signal and listen for the echo back.
