  1. I’m curious. When you speak of artists, do you include yourself as a writer? When I’m talking about artists generically (as opposed to those earning a living through art), I tend to lump myself into the group. I often wonder if this is pretentious, aspirational or merely misguided.

    1. I do, Jeff. I am glad you do, too. I think being an artist has more to do with orientation to the world and habits for being in it. I am interested in the lowercase idea of artist as a sort of creature. I like studying what they do and how they have thought. I never cease to be amazed at where they are hiding (and under what official professions). I guess because I need a lot of help : )
