Wild Women

Wild women use red in their paintings
Scream a yellow hillside
Push pink into the night sky.

Wild women let lives tangle and
Watch as their words skip across pages
Leading to dark planets.
The other side of the moon.

Wild women put their Ph.D.s in chalices
Place them on the altar and run away
To play with color squares and magic markers.

Wild women cry when they remember
Laugh at all they know they know,
Then dance like nymphs in the moonlight.

--Excerpt from Taproots: Where Ideas are Born by Carol Egmont St. John

"There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into actions. Because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. If you block it, it will never exist through another medium and be lost. The world will not have it.

It is not your business to determine how good it is, nor how valuable it is, nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.

You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you...

...No artist is pleased. [There is] no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others."

- Martha Graham
