‎The artist is always a participant. He tries to be true not only to his craft but also to himself. For it is the supreme duty of the artist to investigate the truth, no matter what forces attempt to hide it. And then to report it to the people, to confront them with it, like a whiplash that will cause wounds but will free the mind from the various fantasies and escapist fare that the Establishment pollutes our minds with. — Lino Brocka (April 3, 1939–May 21, 1991)

And just like that…

…a moment of inspiration hit me as I was trying to go to sleep. This is one of those things that can’t be ignored or think you can come back to later. Any artist (music, poetry, visual, etc.) knows that you have to act on it right now while the creative juices are still flowing.

Sure, I might be tired at work for one day, but a finished song will last a lot longer than that. I’d say it’s worth it.
