" Life is more important than art, thats what makes art so important "

ink and gold pen on old shop display board 2008

The above is a quote fom the American writer James Baldwin 1924-1987 I like it a lot ....... the struggles between life and art, one negating the other, both dependant on the other ,the dog trying to catch its tail.
ho hum, all I know is that to make any sense of my life , this life.... I have to make it,remake it and keep doing it in many forms until I feel a connection to something or someone and then, momentarily I feel human and real.
I guess its a sense of recognition that there is a thin veil between this life and another life . In the words of the Greek poet Sappho .....
Whatever one loves , is
