The pages are still blank, but there is a miraculous feeling of the words being there, written in invisible ink and clamoring to become visible.

serve justice so as not to add to the injustice of the human condition, to insist on plain language so as not to increase the universal falsehood, and to wager, in spite of human misery, for happiness - The Rebel, Albert Camus

Art doesn't explode out into new and frivolous novelties; it implodes into what's true about us all. It informs everything, literally everything, causing what looks like madness, or sickness in its practitioners. One is no longer writing or painting or playing its notes. It moves itself, and it is all one can do to hang on for the ride.

The cradle rocks above an abyss, and common sense tells us that our existence is but a brief crack of light between two eternities of darkness.

"That's what happiness is. It's not having enough money to get high and go partying every night, or anything else. It's being alive, and once you realize that, happiness comes easy."

Neil Gaiman said this at a question and answer event. He was with Neil Degrasse Tyson and you might be able to still find the video on Youtube. But it will remain my favorite Neil Gaiman quote, hands down.

What makes this very special to me is that the video was posted on December 6th, my birthday. And although I've long since abandoned my belief in the paranormal, I still occasionally allow myself to feel special at times like this. Without further adieu, here's the quote:

"Nobody gets to be you, except you
Nobody has your point of view, except you
Nobody gets to bring to the world, the things you get to uniquely bring to the world, except you."
