“Giraffe on Fire” – Salvador Dali

Gleanings found here and there:

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

Iceland, China, Sandra's Christmas & School Spring-Summe (9)Drop your maps and listen to your lostness like a sacred calling into presence.

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.
~ Toko-pa
