ADAM RAFFERTY: IT'S ALL ABOUT FEELING


See what I'm talking about here and here.

Also, consider this excerpt from Early Morning - Remembering my Father, William Stafford by Kim Stafford, which was a gift from sweet Kirie who knew I would love it (and yes, Kirie, I do!):

My father told me, “A student comes to me with a piece of writing, holds it out, says ‘Is this good?’ A whole sequence of emergencies goes off in my mind. That’s not a question to ask anyone but yourself. Others may be able to accept standards from another. But an artist is a person who decides."

  2. Wow.

    I immediately want to get this book.

    That is a wonderful quotation, is absolutely true. I'll be thinking about this for quite a while.

    Thanks for sharing it!!
