Quote of the Day

Steve Kilbey became "Steve Kilbey" by feeding his active imagination at every opportunity - reading voraciously in literature, history, and metaphysics; experimenting with altered states of consciousness; challenging himself to branch I to new mediums if ever his creativity waned. Coupled with this internal work, Steve pursued his professional goals with single minded focus, to the exclusion of all other considerations. ...
The time-honored formula for artistic success and longevity: Always keep your eyes open to the complexity of the world. Document it. Celebrate it and eviscerate it in equal measure. Work, work, work. And if you ever find yourself losing your state of innate wonder, alter your perceptions.

Robert Dean Lurie, "No Certainty Attached", page 300-1.
