Chuck Close : “I don’t believe in inspiration. Inspiration is for amatuers, the rest of us just show up and get to work… Inspiration is highly overrated. If you sit around and wait for the clouds to part, it’s not liable to ever happen. More often than not work is salvation.” … … Currently : * Reading Twlya Tharp’s book : ‘The Creative Habit.’ * Running or power walking 3 to 6 miles 5 times a week. I move into the next phase of aerobics in November. * Realizing I have been projecting my values on to others again and I must again wake up and stop all assumptions. * Feeling overwhelmed by all the things that take me away from creative productivity (again). * Wondering what constitutes a true comrade.* Staring down cynicism until it dissolves (again). *
