Kurt Vonnegut

This is one of the nicest quotes I have ever read about making art. I think everyone should be engaged in making art of some sort–think what an awesome world we would be in if everyone were idly turning about an art project in their minds, figuring out what size it would be, what materials they would need, color–or sound, words, movement.

All the more reason to get that blank sketchbook out and start doodling, fiddling around, daydreaming–on paper.

  1. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I think we all can use a reminder every now and then. I know I can! “A way to make the soul grow.” Right on.

  2. Jason–I met Kurt Vonnegut once at an event where my husband was receiving an award. My head was turned by all the famous people there (Chuck Close! Stephen Sondheim!) but Mr. Vonnegut was the only one who made me feel almost panicky with admiration and awe. He was very kind, but sidled away–I think he sensed my panic, too. But what a writer. His collected essays are wonderfully life affirming, too.
