Artist friend http://www.kristinreiberharris.com/ has been enthralled watching the DVD of The Power of the Myth with Bill Moyers interviewing Joseph Campbell.
The book lives in my studio...I often open it at random...like now...
Bill Moyers: What does it mean to have a sacred place?
Joseph Campbell: This is an absolute necessity for anybody today. You must have a room, or a certain hour or so a day, where you don't know what was in the newspapers that morning, you don't know who your friends are, you don't know what you owe anybody, you don't know what anybody owes you. This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be. This is the place of creative incubation. At first you may find that nothing happens there. But if you have a sacred place and use it, something eventually will happen.
Do you have a sacred place? Do you go there?
