Teaching as Delight (3)

  Maybe the only impossibility that is real is repetition.  The only reality that is not new is newness.    At the same time, “novelty” is not new, because doing something to-be-new is “old hat.”

Being myself is the commonest way of being, but it’s also the only way
in which I can be new.  I find modeling a special “how” for all of this
at once.  Drawing people nude can have this newness also, if I take care
to keep myself working at it in that way.  As an artist, and as a
model, “making new” is my work.
