 ”Sometimes a Surma man will paint the girl to whom he is attracted. This provides an excellent opportunity not only to perfect his painting technique but also to get to know the woman of his desire. This man uses a stalk of green grass to apply paint made from pulverized leaves mixed with chalk and water” | Image and caption  ”Painted Bodies” by Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher

A manuscript page by William Stafford, from his 1993 Art of Poetry interview.
His son Kim included the following note: “He wrote the poem at Yaddo, then sent it to many magazines. The Paris Review is one of almost a dozen who rejected what eventually became the title poem in his collection, Traveling Through the Dark, which won the National Book Award in 1962. I believe my father would have enjoyed the irony, as I hope you do, of this poem appearing in this form in Paris Review lo these thirty-five years later.”

The arts need to cross — they need to work together, otherwise they start to die out. I mean music will never die out, but ballet is a dying art form, sadly.

NYCB principal dancer Robert Fairchild

Classical dance isn’t dead — it’s being reborn with pop music

‘Potential Energies’ may be the first ballet piece about the millennial experience

For many of the millennials, the realization that few artists are able to make art for their living and that fewer still find straight paths to success has led to abandoning creative work. But these hardships are not exclusive to millennials, and as Vendil elaborated, “Philip Glass was a cab driver when Einstein premiered. Being a struggling artist is absolutely not uniquely a problem for millennials. Being an artist is supposed to be this hard: You’re trying to live an ideal life of making something you love everyday. So regardless of the economy, no one should be surprised at how hard it is to be an artist. What should be more surprising is how hard it is to find a decent day job.”
