I found this quote yesterday on The Writer’s Almanac.

“Nothing is less real than realism. Details are confusing. It is only by selection, by elimination, by emphasis, that we get at the real meaning of things.”            Georgia O’Keefe


  1. Oh, but some details can be interesting. Did you know that Georgia O’Keeffe’s middle name was Totto? Not the same as the fictional Dorothy Gale’s dog, Toto, that went took the trip to Oz in the 1939 Hollywood movie, who was, in reality, paid more then the the actors that played the munchkins. Interesting details, but confusing, and totally unnecessary.
