A quote from James Miller’s “Everyman with a Blue Guitar: Imagination, Creativity, Language”:

“There is an intractable, impenetrable, flowing, and infinite world of reality that presses in on the senses, which the imagination then shapes into a tractable, penetrable, comprehensible reality structured by the strumming on the blue guitar-that is, in art, in language. This is the imagination in its continuous creative process as it encounters and structures reality” (75).
