The Price

As an artist, do you feel blessed, or not?

Do you feel that you must sacrifice and suffer for your art? Do you torment yourself by the intensity of divine fire, or do you use the heat to forge a new world evolution?

While others might have sold their souls to the company store, you have kept true to yours at all costs—not as in the ends justifying the means, but as an individual of character who knows the heavens don’t penalize mortals; men punish or reward themselves.

The price for divine fire is dedication.
