Last Time: Go Creative… With Jack Gilbert

“Life’s splendor forever lies in wait, about each one of us, in all its fullness. But veiled from view, deep down, invisible, far off.creative intelligence park

“It is there, though, not hostile, not reluctant, not deaf.

“If you summon it by the right word, by its right name, it will come.

“You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen.

“Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked.

“It has no choice. It will roll in ecstasy at your feet.”  — Franz Kafka.
