air and light and time and space

“you know, i’ve either had a family, a job, something has always been in the way but now i’ve sold my house, i’ve found this place, a large studio, you should see the space and the light. for the first time in my life i’m going to have a place and the time to create.”

no baby, if you’re going to create you’re going to create whether you work 16 hours a day in a coal mine
or you’re going to create in a small room with 3 children while you’re on welfare, you’re going to create with part of your mind and your body blown away, you’re going to create blind crippled demented,
you’re going to create with a cat crawling up your back while the whole city trembles in earthquake, bombardment, flood and fire.

baby, air and light and time and space have nothing to do with it and don’t create anything except maybe a longer life to find new excuses for.

– Charles Bukowski
