Jennet plays as she speaks and as she dances and as she makes love, each note picked carefully out of her memory and placed precisely beside all the others, rising without warning into passionate and fortuitous art, like the making of blue in the air.Β Β  –Β  from The Iceweaver by Margaret Lawrence

You were not born for nothing. In you, in the terrific, singular way life has shaped you, there is a truth that is yours to tell. You may say: Not me. You may think: What I have done in this lifetime is to follow orders well. Not true. There is an undercurrent. You dream. You have something to say that we need to hear… Smash a hammer to the geode that is you. Shine a light on what is most beautiful, heartbreaking, and real for you in life and in your heart. Then let this vision be known, let us be made right, made whole, be dazzled by your truth. – Mackey Alston, documentary filmmaker

I can’t believe that God put us on this earth to be ordinary. -Lou Holtz

I am not eccentric! It’s just that I am more alive than most people. I am an unpopular electric eel, set in a pond of goldfish!

— Dame Edith Sitwell

I think it is easy to stop ourselves from being too bright, too happy, too successful. Conformity also soothes us. We can predict it, and there is the illusion of control. Unfortunately, we also stop ourselves from being too visible, unusual or vivid.
