A great quote in last week's New Yorker, in an article about the painter Luc Tuymans, who describes how he creates his work: "It's like I don't know what I'm doing but I know how to do it."

Peter Schjeldahl, the article's author, notes that "uncertain ends, confident means is about as good a general definition of creativity as I know."

I love how great definitions of this kind of head-space, or whatever you call it, can both "nail it" and still feel great distances away from handing it to us.
