And I read this short passage today:
“The Greek poets saw and felt, and then wrote. They learned from suffering, and the way they learned was to make the effort to articulate their personal experience into forms that transcended it. They combined examined experience with the discipline of art to bring forth a statement forever useful to their fellow human beings.”
— Anne Truitt (my italics)
There are so many times that I feel unable to articulate what I am trying to achieve. I can’t find the words on my own, but I find a writer who can say it for me.
This is the goal: to transform/translate personal experience into forms that transcend it.
Thank you, Anne.
