Life is curvy

The artist needs to know how to lose the plot – how to not care and how to not know – and how to actually enjoy that freedom and understand what a blessed revitalising state all of that mess can be.*
(Michael Leunig)

the goal is to end up […] “lost in the woods” with a creative challenge or a problem that needs solving**
(Warren Berger)

The straight line
will take me there
quickly
but perhaps not richly,

so I will take
a slower way
into a messy fullness.

(*From Michael Leunig’s post: Regressive Painting and the Holy Fool.)
