EVENT SPOTLIGHT: THE WORM THAT FLIES IN THE NIGHT

What is creativity? How is it destroyed in the mind?

O rose, thou art sick:
The invisible worm
That flies in the night
In the howling storm,

Has found out thy bed
Of crimson joy,
And his dark secret love
Does thy life destroy.


- William Blake, "The Sick Rose," Songs of Experience
