75 our responsibility

75/365 | year of creative habits Last night I finished reading Still Writing by Dani Shapiro. Here's one more quote from the book that hit me hard:

"We are always coming face-to-face with our limits, or with the limits that the world imposes upon us. If we are artists--hell whether or not we are artists--it is our job, our responsibility, perhaps even our sacred calling, to take whatever life has handed us and make something new, something that wouldn't have existed if not for the fire, the genetic mutation, the sick baby, the accident."
