Curtis White, in response to the question “What do you think is the hardest thing about being a creative in this culture?” (North America, 2012):
and to “What’s the best advice you might offer a beginning writer?” (I just ‘slipped’ and typed “writher”!), he replied:
“So my best advice is to read Nietzsche until you understand him and go from there”
thank you Curtis White 🙂

He calls another person’s art “sedation for slaves” and WE’RE the ones who are self-satisfied and delusional?
Who is Curtis White? Though we can read Nietzche until we are blue in the face and still not write a lick of sense.
I like the beardered ink of you, at first I thought it was some Zen Bodhisattva, but maybe you are.
Even Nietzsche himself from time to time 🙂
I thought it was a quote for reactions…I much enjoyed White’s novel “Requiem,” but am picking up on some bitterness after many years attempting education in a creative writing department…
She flatters me 🙂 I liked that quality of it as well, that quality of the PICTURE…art imbues I suspect
I will put some time towards his writing when the chanced encounter occurs, just from what I noted briefly, he does stir interest.
Anyone who ruffles feathers as much as Mr. N is worthy of a good read, ( though maybe in small doses!). He puts together some damned fine poetic imagery as well….
Thought the quotes were simply true, and am amazed at the reactions.
always interesting 🙂
