This is a great article, and I feel an important point. It is something that worries me in my own (artistic) life and I find myself, perhaps nostalgically, wishing I was making my art in a 'simpler' time, perhaps the 60s (don't worry, I know I am being overly simplistic here). I worry that my art will never reach its full potential due to the lack of time, physical and mental, that I can give to it, distracted my the plethora of modern day interferences, but this article verbalizes that much more eloquently than I ever could, so enjoy:

It also reminded me of points discussed by Wendy Houstoun at the Juncture festival, which I blogged about earlier in 2012.
