Craig Morgan Teicher has written a book titled “We Begin in Gladness.” It is about how poets progress and find their voice. Maybe I’ll get it and read it. Maybe the title is all I need hear. Some books are like that. I am quite sure without reading that much of what it says is true of all art making.
But I doubt it says everything that needs to be said. Somehow the flight of a sanderling over gulf surf speaks to the point. To know gladness, to hear poetry, to make art, listen to creation.
