Discovered this great quote on the blog “Greater Umbrage”

“You see, in the beginning was the Word. And the Word was made flesh in the weave of the human universe. And only the poet can expand this universe, finding shortcuts to new realities the way the Hawking drive tunnels under the barriers of Einsteinian space/time… To be a true poet is to become God.” 

~ Dan Simmons

Wow.  It makes me feel crazily powerful!  How daunting.  How magnificent.  How humbling!
