“Dreamboat Annie”

~ Heart

“The receptivity of the artist must never be confused with passivity. Receptivity is the artist’s holding him – or herself alive and open to hear what being may speak. Such receptivity requires a nimbleness, a fine-honed sensitivity in order to let one’s self be the vehicle of whatever vision may emerge. It is the opposite of the authoritarian demands impelled by ‘will power’…It requires a high degree of attention… It is an active listening, keyed to hear the answer, alert to see whatever can be glimpsed when the vision or words do come. It is a waiting for the birthing process to begin to move in its own organic time.”
