winging it every day. For us to try to second-guess our
Muse the way a hack second-guesses his audience is conde-
scension to heaven. It's blasphemy and sacrilege.

I feel growing inside me? Let me bring that forth, if I can, for
its own sake and not for what it can do for me or how it can
advance my standing.
