What Is Terror? Beauty? Silence? Art?

On the importance of being exposed…

That’s the whole bloody thing, isn’t it? Everything that really matters, everything that really works out there—as a writer, as an artist, as an interlocutor—everything you do is about whether or not you actually are going to be exposed. If you choose not to be, if you choose to be defended, if you choose not to go there, if you choose not to risk it, then that’s your choice and that’s fine.
