1 Life is jazz: We're meant to learn and expect the changes so well that we have no fear of swinging around each prescriptive feature of the source material until we've made it our own. We're meant to brave and embrace variations on themes. At our best, we're enthusiastically modal.
2 There's no proceeding without imagination.
3 Creating from a place of candor comes at a cost. It also pays dividends.
4 I've been making art since childhood... pressing tiny creases into the fabric of posterity.
