Chaos assembled, beauty emerges

So it says on the snippet clipped and stuck to my desktop--the actual, physical desktop where I sit every day to write. The chaos of making, when things work or don't, when I try and succeed, when I try and try and fail, when I write a script or a story or a novel: hoping all the while that, if the conditions have been correctly created, and chaos allowed to do what it must, that beauty--hard beauty, fierce beauty, stealthy beauty, strange beauty--will emerge. Lieder_NeglectedGarden May all the chaos of this new year bring all the beauty it can, to all of us, to all the world. [Image: "The Neglected Garden," courtesy Rick Lieder.]
