“The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.”
I’ll run my heart out for you,
Because running is what I love to do.
And all I ask in return, from you,
Is soft hands, and a voice kind and true.
—F. J. Burgess, opening lines to “The Racehorse”
