Who is an artist ? Can you tell what a person does by looking at them? Not really I would say, except we all have concepts of what we think is the norm, we may only see men in a spiritual role because all we ever see is male gods-- Jesus, Buddha, Mohamed etc.. We may only ever experience rock musicians as wildly dressed ,tattooed extroverts. In fact we all carry ideas of who does what in our heads, these are our concepts and of course they can vary from person to person.

So when a friend of mine declared that I was too organized for this person to think of me as being an artist, I was a little surprised. Maybe she has only known artists who were all over the place. I think this is a fairly common concept of the artist. I am glad I go against the grain.
