Well, it really IS all about the process, isn't it? I've been thinking: it seems like most of the artists I know manage to include the word "pursue" in statements about their relationship to their art. And, just as one can never actually reach the horizon or the end of a rainbow, here we all are, pursuing our dream, our avocation, our love of art. And I can't remember ever hearing anyone say that they caught it.
Good thing the process of pursuit is so joyful, since we'll always have to be satisfied with it.
