Last Time: Go Creative… With Katherine Mansfield


“Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one who asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others,

“hate tyrants…

“re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book,

“dismiss whatever insults your own soul,

“and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body.”

- From Preface to "Leaves of Grass" by Walt Whitman
