The manifesto for healthy (honest) creativity! Well said. The premature reflection is one that I haven't thought of much and maybe don't fully understand - I think I've just used different language. I know judging my work during the creative process is usually counter productive but its often tough for me to make it all the way through without doing it. I gonna print this and post it on my studio wall!
“There is plenty of courage among us for the abstract but not for the concrete.” - Helen Keller
“Love, like truth and beauty, is concrete. Love is not fundamentally a sweet feeling; not, at heart, a matter of sentiment, attachment, or being "drawn toward." Love is active, effective, a matter of making reciprocal and mutually beneficial relation with one's friends and enemies. Love creates righteousness, or justice, here on earth. To make love is to make justice. As advocates and activists for justice know, loving involves struggle, resistance, risk.” - Carter Heyward
