Invoking Creativity

I learned to turn my creativity over to the only god I could believe in, the god of creativity, the life force Dylan Thomas called "the force that through the green fuse drives the flower."  I learned to get out of the way and just let that creative force work through me."

 "The position of the artist should be humble.  He is essentially a  channel."

"We are the Great Work of Art in progress.  We, ourselves."

Your post caused me to think of the following lyrics:

"Holy water, sacred flame.
Bridget we invoke your name.
Bless our hands,our heads, our heart, source of healing, song, and art." from Anne Hill's cd "Circle Round"
