I have learned that an object, a work of art, is sometimes just a moment, a punctuation mark, in a sentence, a larger movement. That may well be obvious, but we still have to bring out its luster.
Every work of art is a failure.
I have finally learned that there can be grace in failure. This book is not erudite or academic. Works of art are not there to be explained or critiqued, they are there to hold up.
Windfall losses. Something new, perhaps.”
