"I trust my subconscious implicitly. It is my good pet. I try to keep it well-fed with information through all my senses, but never look directly at it."

- Ray Bradbury in response to a presumptuous sixteen-year-old's request for famous authors' opinions on symbolism in literature, here.

I can feel the sixteen-year-old skeptic, the literary critic, and the trusting artist elbowing out space in my head. I wonder that there's even space for a subconscious under all that racket.
