Edward Gorey on the Unexpected in Creative Projects + Morning Mantra

Frequent contributor Susan Dworski threw this Edward Gorey quote over our transom.

THAT IS SO GREAT!!!!!!, we wrote. It applies to making just about anything new. 

“If something doesn’t creep into ________________(fill in creative project) that you are not prepared for, you might as well not have made it.”

Replied Susan,
Or, as I always say upon awakening…

“Surprise me.”
