“Snow-melt in the stream: Mama Nature turning winters storms into nourishment for the soil, fecundity, and beauty. This is what I must now learn to do with the stormy weather Ive been passing through: turn it into beauty, turn it into art, so new life can germinate and bloom. One example of a creative artist who does this is my friend Jane Yolen, who wrote her exquisite book of poems The Radiation Sonnets while her husband was undergoing treatment for the cancer that would eventually claim his life. This is what all artists must do: take whatever life gives us and “alchemize” it into our art (either directly and autobiographically, as in Janes book, or indirectly; whatever approach works best), turning darkness into light, spinning straw into gold, transforming pain and hardship into what J.R.R. Tolkien called a miraculous grace.” — Terri Windling
