    When Van Gogh was a young man in his early twenties, he was in London studying to be a clergyman. He had no thought of being an artist at all. he sat in his cheap little room writing a letter to his younger brother in Holland, whom he loved very much. He looked out his window at a watery twilight, a thin lamppost, a star, and he said in his letter something like this: “it is so beautiful I must show you how it looks.” And then on his cheap ruled note paper, he made the most beautiful, tender, little drawing of it.

    When I read this letter of Van Gogh’s it comforted me very much and seemed to throw a clear light on the whole road of Art. Before, I thought that to produce a work of painting or literature, you scowled and thought long and ponderously and weighed everything solemnly and learned everything that all artists had ever done aforetime, and what their influences and schools were, and you were extremely careful about *design* and *balance* and getting *interesting planes* into your painting, and avoided, with the most astringent severity, showing the faintest *academical* tendency, and were strictly modern. And so on and so on.

    But the moment I read Van Gogh’s letter I knew what art was, and the creative impulse. It is a feeling of love and enthusiasm for something, and in a direct, simple, passionate and true way, you try to show this beauty in things to others, by drawing it.

    And Van Gogh’s little drawing on the cheap note paper was a work of art because he loved the sky and the frail lamppost against it so seriously that he made the drawing with the most exquisite conscientiousness and care.

    did you see the one where we once went out walking
    or the one with hair the colour of yr eyes
    I think one day i would like to have my own
    but how everything is right now suits me fine

    there’s no need to commit for the sake of someone else
    we don’t have to admit anything to ourselves
    and if that is a sin then maybe i’ll see you in hellllllll

    we watch tradition pass us from the roadside
    we find new ways to talk through song and art
    my great grandfather made clocks until he died
    i’ve made my own and set it to your heart

    it’s unsteady beat pushes love through the cogs
    we feel it seep in as we sit and watch the dogs
    and we don’t know any names but darling is that so wrong?
