When we are self-conscious, we cannot be wholly aware; we must throw ourselves out first. This throwing ourselves away is the act of creativity. So, when we wholly concentrate, like a child in play, or an artist at work, then we share in the act of creating. We not only escape time, we also escape our self-conscious selves.

🎂 Happy Birthday Madeleine L’Engle (November 29, 1918–September 6, 2007). In Memoriam🌹
