What to avoid

“A person afflicted with poetic longings of one sort or another searches for a kind of intellectual and spiritual privacy in which to indulge his strange excesses. To achieve this sort of privacy, this ariel suspension of the lyrical spirit, he does not necessarily have to wrench himself away, physically from everybody and everything in his life, but he does have to forswear certain easy rituals, such a earning a living and running the world’s errands.”
E.B.White
