i needed to hear this today

Kiki Smith: "Just do your work. And if the world needs your work it will come and get you. And if it doesn't, do your work anyway. You can have fantasies about having control over the world, but I know I can barely control my kitchen sink. That is the grace I'm given. Because when one can control things, one is limited to one's own vision."


  1. How profound! I love the last bit about being 'limited to one's own vision.' Food for thought. I also love the photo of her. She looks like a very interesting person to have coffee with!
