…or you could see something new. And by seeing that something new that’s here that nobody sees, and you illuminate others, then you’ve got it made.
- Gregory Corso
I am particularly taken with the “seeing” aspect of this quote. It implies, to me, that whatever you are creating is not only a creation but an act of observation, of giving credence. The World is the subject, a place we are in disbelief of, though it occurs again and again without regard for our ability to understand it. What Corso is speaking about here is something like a prophetic act.
