Nothing gets done unless someone is willing to get their hands dirty.
In the western cultures we admire cleanliness, and the modern way of life. But underneath the white walls, and pavement, is the evidence of people who wheren’t afraid of a bit of dirt.
Art making is no different.
We paint, we sculpt, we gather, and glue. A writer creates a ‘dirty draft’ before shaving away exes prose and blowing the fragments into the waste bin at the back of the mind.
We can not remove the muck of ‘making’ from life.
It might be dirty, but it’s beautiful.
I, for one, am thankful that God himself was not afraid of the dirty work of making.
