When asked to say something about their work, novelists often resort to “the book wrote itself” or that their characters seemed to have lives of their own. I could say a similar thing about my work — although it would be making light of an intense process, a kind of tightrope walk between the conscious and unconscious. As the Zen masters say, a painting is already there before it is painted — but without the artist, you’d never know.
