The agreeable eye

pretty slick

Clear sky on the way home, the roads and sidewalks icy--as was the field at the dog park; starting to warm up though.

But the conquest of the physical world is not man’s only duty. He is also enjoined to conquer the great wilderness of himself. The precise role of the artist, then, is to illuminate that darkness, blaze roads through that vast forest, so that we will not, in all our doing, lose sight of its purpose, which is, after all, to make the world a more human dwelling place.

—James Baldwin (‘The Creative Process’)
