‘World Enough & Time: On Creativity and Slowing Down’ by Christian McEwan

World Enough & Time West Coast book launch presented by The Beat Museum and Literary Cadences

…When a thought
comes a-springing from afar with its held-
forth figure of image, you spoof it out,
you spuff it off, you fake it, and
it fades…

Jack Kerouac, from “How to Meditate”
