Acclaimed novelist Christopher Isherwood (pictured here on the left with W. H. Auden/1939) once wrote the following prayer for writers that is as relevant for 2008 as it was when he penned it in 1940:
“Oh source of my inspiration, teach me to extend toward all living that fascinated, unsentimental, loving and all-pardoning interest which I feel for the characters I create. May I become identified with all humanity, as I identify myself with these imaginary persons. May my life become my art and my art my life.”
Happy New Year to one and all.
