lost because artists have to make a Im skeptical of that I think most artists find a way to get what art they have in their system out of one way or It might be truer to say that the rest of us miss reading or ap preciating a lot of good art because were too busy We dont stop and listen to good go to a go to a movie or read a good book as often as wed like because we wont take the Wed like but living takes so long to get through most days that we cant find the time to spend appreciating music and Thats where art is I feel terrible every week not reading all the Sunday There are always interesting articles in it on cultural At some point around Sunday after a long Charles Kuralt watching I have to make a Do I spend the whole day enriching myself or do I get at doing a job We all
