Thoughts on an Artistic Life

Some of us have chosen, or been condemned, to record the world that is all around us. We start small, looking around the room, but soon we also look out the window, see the world we have, for better or worse, inherited. Shrimpers and stockbrokers, roughnecks and collared priests, and on and on, all moving about, the years piling up. 

Any land will give up words, and history, and secrets. I am still naive enough to think that my life is meant to gather what this land I walk on has to say, the colors and the smells, what is old and what is new - to preserve it in phrases and lines and images - as if there might be something worth saving.
