Juvenal’s advice: a healthy mind in a healthy body (Mens sana in corpore sano).

Art is an endurance sport.  If either mind or body is not well, seek a sensible remedy.

A good worker takes care of his tools, and an artist’s tools are the mind and the body.

[This post is dedicated to the life and memory of Paul Squires of Gingatao, a great poet of the early 21st century.]

  1. Create; make stuff; make your own stuff; be yourself; prevail; don’t give up; just do it. No excuses. No regrets.

    Thank you aletha. Somehow your tribute strikes just the right note/s. Oh to be fearless and free.

    It’s the work that sets you (me) free.

    I miss you Paul. You were the best of us.

  2. Indeed, Patrice, I know Paul wanted people to be fearless and free. I read him saying something like that.

    No guilt, Ben. Just work, and especially indulgent work, lavishly richly gloriously indulgence in work-play-work.

    And Paul Squires was a great poet.
