It’s very easy for artists to become insular and not meet new people. That’s a shame because you don’t know if you will be helping a new person or they might be helping you on this journey.  Your thinking becomes a little twisted if you are only thinking your own thoughts.

 Books do help though.  I just read Louis Lamour’s “Lonesome  Gods”. Tremendous thought and philosophy and really good reading at the same time.  Saw the other day “Fountainhead” by Ayn Rand.  I had read the book twice when I was in my twenties but it had so much more meaning during the courtroom scene about keeping your integrity and being true to yourself.  I don’t know what happened but I just started bawling. 

This is what I meant about meeting new people and planting seeds of discovery in your mind. Meeting new people in books or thru coffee whatever but start that seed planting.
