“The inner life has its soft and gentle beauty; an abstract formlessness as well as a subtle charm. I often consider myself as a figure in a foggy painting: faltering lines, insecure distances, and a merging of greys and blacks. An emotion or a mood — a mere wisp of color — is shaded off and made to spread until it becomes one with all that surrounds it.”

~  Virginia Woolf, from Passionate Apprentice: The Early Journals, 1897-1909 Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 1991)

Adrienne Rich, “Snapshots of a Daughter-in-Law.”
“Lynch himself insists that he had a happy and protected childhood: “My childhood was elegant homes, tree-lined streets, the milkman [..] blue skies, green grass, cherry trees.” [..] Then he added, “Some artists believe that anger, depression, or these negative things give them an edge. They think they need to hold on to that anger and fear so they can put it in their work. And they don’t like the idea of getting happy — it makes them want to puke.””

“I opened myself to the gentle indifference of the world.”
