"I once read somewhere that most cultures have a word in their vocabulary which defines that event or activity - when Time does not exist. Creativity leads us into the Now where past regrets and future worries are not permitted. Time becomes meaningless in the face of Creativity." -Fred Babb

When I read this quote, it put into words something I had always experienced with my art. It gave me great affirmation to know that this was something all artists, and really anyone who becomes wholly involved in what they are creating, hope to feel. So, when I work, I go to the place that has no time.
