"Surrender To The Black Dog"

“Good art wounds as well as delights. It must, because our defenses against the truth are wound so tightly around us. But as art chips away at our defenses, it also opens us to healing potentialities that transcend intellectual games and ego-preserving strategies.”
― Rollo May
Some days you have to succumb to the bitch. Surrender to that bitch. And then you wake up and realise: Dammit. It’s a new day … and start over.
