“What a gulf between impression and expression! That’s our ironic fate—to have Shakespearean feelings and (unless by some billion-to-one chance we happen to be Shakespeare) to talk about them like automobile salesmen or teen-agers or college professors. We practice alchemy in reverse—touch gold and it turns into lead; touch the pure lyrics of experience, and they turn into the verbal equivalents of tripe and hogwash.”
The weekly challenge is Express Yourself.
Since I believe that is what I do with this blog everyday, I am choosing to highlight others I have met in my travels over the years who expressed themselves.
My first attempt is here.
If you visited Provincetown anytime in the summers between about 2000 and 2011 you may have met Ella. Damn but she could sing.
