“you’re an artist. . . ” I’m here in New York City after a weekend trip to the ocean and a cabin with a crackling fire in Montauk. Driving through the Hamptons was fascinating to me and even though the fresh sea air, steam room, Finnish sauna, Jacuzzi, sun deck were purging toxins from my body, I think the real purge was from a place some refer to as the soul. As I lay in bed reading last night, I put down my book and wondered if there is going to be a sign that I will recognize in the next few days that will change and direct the course of my life. My arms are extended as I feel my way through the dark. “You’re an artist. You get PAID to be delusional.”
