The Chase

From now, we are enemies... You and I. Because You choose for Your instrument a boastful, lustful, smutty, infantile boy and give me for reward only to recognize the incarnation.
— Antonio Salieri (Amadeus)

For the creative individual, the inability to close the gap of what is seen in the mind and what is rendered into reality is a particular kind of hell.

The potter's hands are dry and marred, because the clay is always trying to disfigure itself. It is through the will of the craftsman that it is shaped into something meaningful - something to be remarked upon.

It is in that middle-space - between thought and actuality, where creativity lives.

Creating is chasing.
