I've stumbled and fallen and gotten back up in pursuit of art so many times, I've lost count; the irony is that it took so much effort, the reward was paled in significance. I now show a 180° reversal in effort/reward ratios. Plus, since I've been watching shows with smart people solving puzzles & crimes, I'm acting smarter. That and coffee at 3:30PM makes me a mean machine.
They say nature abhors a vacuum. This is only the result of that phenomenon.
