On obvious secrets

“If it seems I’ve come the long way around, perhaps I have. But I wanted to show what we all have in us, that is has always been there, and so few of us bother to notice. When people ask me where I get my ideas, I laugh. How strange – we’re so busy looking out, to find ways and means, we forget to look in.”

Ray Bradbury, Zen in the art of writing. How to keep and feed a muse. p. 36
