“Good artists are people who can stick things together so that they stay stuck. They know how to gather things into formal arrangements that are intelligible, memorable, and lasting. Good forms confer health upon the things that they gather together. Farms, families, and communities are forms of art just as are poems, paintings, and symphonies. None of these things would exist if we did not make them. We can make them well or poorly; this choice is another thing that we make” (Wendell Berry, in “Life is a Miracle: an Essay Against Modern Superstition,” 2000).

My creative calling is to scrape together artists and audiences, to stick them together so they stay stuck.  Together we tell and live a better story.

These are the passages I want to bookmark.
