two houses

It is hard to stretch yourself. It is hard, at the beginning of the 21st century, to justify an uneconomical pursuit. So much of life is geared to material gain, that even in the art world the questions are asked as to the commercial viability of the undertaking.

It’s hard to stick your neck out and do what you want to do. But in the end, at the gates, it isn’t what you’ve got in the bank that matters, I guess.

Have you tried they will ask. Have you been as far as you can? Have you pushed out the vessel for transport by water, constructed to provide buoyancy by excluding water and shaped to give stability and permit propulsion?

Have you, then, been true to yourself? Or do you live in another’s house?
