Sunday Baroque

“A gift of any kind is a considerable responsibility. It is a mystery in itself, something gratuitous and wholly undeserved, something whose real uses will probably always be hidden. Usually the artist has to suffer certain deprivations in order to use his gift with integrity.

…No art is sunk in the self, but rather, in art the self becomes self-forgetful in order to meet the demands of the thing seen and the thing being made.”  Flannery O’Connor – “Mystery and Manners”
