Along the way
Saying yes to some.
Saying no to others.
Effort on what is essential.
Honor the sense of adventure, responsiveness,
Improvisation, opportunism, experimentation, alertness,
The possible contagion of topics.
Rich, tacit understanding
Intuitions about form, language, dialogue, voice.
The dazzling particularity of individual performance.
Toward invention, toward generation,
The infinity of connections and associations,
Of excess, of fullness, of having a lot to say.
Tip the balance.
Develop hope for the future.
Have a big voice.
