Snagging the imagination

“When something we have seen or done or felt or been told–whatever we have experienced–strikes us in such a way that we want to turn to an expressive form to try to create after it, there has to have been something inside that original moment worthy of our imaginations, worthy of that snagging of our creative impulse.”
