I really love what Neil Gaiman wrote today. It’s about his response to the US election, which of course must have hit him harder because he has to live there. The most important bit:
“As a solution to various problems you may encounter upon the way, let me suggest this: Make Good Art.
It’s very simple. But it seems to work. Life fallen apart? Make good art. True love ran off with the milkman? Make good art. Bank foreclosing? Make good art.”
As someone who knows this is the truth, and knows equally well that he hasn’t been doing enough of it, these are truly words to live by.
