You have to be always drunk. That’s all there is to it—it’s the only way. So as not to feel the horrible burden of time that breaks your back and bends you to the earth, you have to be continually drunk.

But on what? Wine, poetry or virtue, as you wish. But be drunk.

And if sometimes, on the steps of a palace or the green grass of a ditch, in the mournful solitude of your room, you wake again, drunkenness already diminishing or gone, ask the wind, the wave, the star, the bird, the clock, everything that is flying, everything that is groaning, everything that is rolling, everything that is singing, everything that is speaking…ask what time it is and wind, wave, star, bird, clock will answer you: “It is time to be drunk! So as not to be the martyred slaves of time, be drunk, be continually drunk! On wine, on poetry or on virtue as you wish.”

—   Charles Baudelaire  (Be Drunk)

Persona (1966)

“Curiosity then is the lifeblood of what it is to be human, but not merely the curiosity to know what lies over the next hill, or why a flower blossoms, or how a rock transforms, it is also the curiosity to know how you relate to all of those things, and perhaps more importantly, how they relate to you. Creative art is not just about expressing yourself as the ego; it is also about expressing yourself as the larger you. The understanding that you are part of the complexity of life and the universe, known and unknown is probably the most important voyage of discovery and curiosity that you will ever make, That you can then express that innate curiosity through creative artwork, in whatever discipline appeals to you, is a gift not taken up by many, but a vital ingredient in the outward perspective of us all.”

“Whenever you are creating beauty around you, you are restoring your own soul.”

A worthy endeavour, an alternative symphony from the ambitious, corrosive ones on offer, that we are told are good for us. I would rather this, and the inner peace that comes with it.
