Beginning

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness.

Exactly how a painting starts too :)
Beautiful said and moving.

I agree, a lovely thought, that our work of art grows from the things we long for, from our thirst.

we long for a start, but we don't know effect... good quotation! as always

Glad you like the quote! And i agree, it is the beauty of creation - not knowing the final result. In a way, the artist is discovering his own creation.

the same goes for most beginnings, I guess. 'a sense of wrong' - in a way, to begin means to break up w something that came before, an idea or whatever it was. a sense of lacking something. wonderful quote, as always, as Black and white already very well said :)

I agree, no matter how small they are, beginnings always make a change in our world. Glad you like the quote!

Amazing to think that beautiful art and great writing starts as a thought or an emotion.

Yes, interesting idea, to trace a moment of birth of an art work, it would be a great thing.
