In trying to locate the source of the quote, which I believe is Annie Dillard, I come across this one by Goethe.
No one experiences and enjoys without becoming productive.
That is the innermost characteristic of nature.
Experience and enjoy today!
And here is Picasso. "The painter passes through states of fullness and emptying. That is the whole secret of art."
Live an artistic day - empty and fill - fill and empty - enjoy the play.
