How slow mastery comes to creative peopleOctober 30th, 2011 at 10:17 pm ET
… I loved this interview with poet, writer, and photographer Mary Jo Bang. I think the way she describes the coming of slow mastery is, though expressed in prose, quite poetic:
And I saw how, if you steadily worked at something, what you don’t know gradually erodes and what you do know slowly grows and at some point you’ve gained a degree of mastery. What you know becomes what you are. You know photography and you are a photographer. You know writing and you are a writer.
