Tell your secrets.
— Allen Ginsberg, when asked, “How does one become a prophet?” Recalled by Lewis Hyde in Trickster Makes This World, where he writes “Uncovering secrets is apocalyptic in the simple sense (the Greek root means ‘an uncovering’). In this case, it lifts the shame covers. It allows articulation to enter where silence once ruled.” (Quoted by Frank in his post on shame and Louis CK)
