The Gap

“The most frustrating, agonizing part of creative work, and the one we grapple with every day in practice, is our encounter with the gap between what we feel and what we can express… Often we look at ourselves and feel that everything is lacking! It is in this gap, this zone of the unknown, where we feel most deeply – but are most inarticulate.”

– Nachmanovitch, 1990

At least with art, photography, music, poetry, dance and the innumerable forms of aesthetic expression… With their beauty of subtlety and space for interpretation, we come that little bit closer to bridging this Gap within.
