"We must begin by laying aside as completely as we can all our own preconceptions, interests, and associations... We must look, and go on looking till we have certainly seen exactly what is there... The first demand any work of art makes upon us is to surrender. Look. Listen. Receive. Get yourself out of the way." - C. S. Lewis, An Experiment in Criticism
Lewis has explained in succinct language what I was expounding on yesterday regarding the creation process. He approaches from the viewers perspective, but the attitude must be the same: Get yourself out of the way! Happy Thursday Y'all!
