The Charioteer says art-making is largely a matter of learning how to ride in the seat of the moving vehicle of it all, harnessing its powers gracefully and with little or focused effort - and still paying close attention, leaving markers in the landscape.
Asked me yesterday about micro vs. macro. How do I regard each? Me responding that I live in the micro, moment to moment, and am proud of it. It is my business to experience it fully. Him saying, yes, though we construct the appropriate containers for fully experiencing-digging-delving into the micro; that is what art is. Because the micro can, in regular life, get us too caught up in it, so that the micro-issue becomes everything and we fail to see the macro. We can get to the point of identifying with the micro-emotion rather than letting it pass through, into the next micro-moment. I don't know what I think of this, overall. How annoyingly wise of him.
