Limit everything to the essential, but do not remove the poetry. - Dieter Rams
I am happiest working in silence, dancing with ideas, and listening closely to the poetry of inspirations that come when I am quiet and open to whatever comes. My best work appears when I listen, respond, listen, respond, compose, edit, listen - repeating as many times as necessary to be sure a finished work has nothing more - and nothing less - that it needs to be complete.
There is a distinct joy in doing the work without any expectation that it will be seen, understood, or appreciated. But, to be honest, my heart still sings when someone says it touches them.
