What would this thought mean for our blogging? Blogging often seems like writing that has not fully gestated, but is rather thoughts and writing that is often hurried and in progress. Something for me to ponder.

Leave to your opinions their own quiet undisturbed development, which, like all progress, must come from deep within and cannot be pressed or hurried by anything. Everything is gestation and then bringing forth. To let each impression and each germ of a feeling come to completion wholly in itself, in the dark, in the inexpressible, the unconscious, beyond the reach of one’s own intelligence, and await with deep humility and patience the birth-hour of a new clarity: tha alone is living the artist’s life: in understanding as in creating.
