Thursday Thought:: Brenda Ueland on The True Self

Tonight, we meet for session 3 of our new PlayGroup entitled The Creative Call. Participants receive notes each week that are designed to foster creative expression. This quote is just a slice of what we'll look at as we consider this week's theme: "Awakening".

“Remember always that the true self is never a fixed thing. You can never say: ‘Good. Today I find at last what I am really like: splendid type!’ You cannot say that because the true self is always in motion like music, a river of life, changing, moving, failing, suffering, learning, shining. That is why you must freely and recklessly make new mistakes—in writing or in life—and do not fret about them but pass on and write more. Active evil is so much better than passive good, which is just docility, feebleness, timidity.”
