Hi, This is my first step in exploring what people do to enrich their lives. Is your work truly your passion? You are fortunate. There are so many people out there who have talent and passions that will never pay the bills but we are driven to explore and develop this part of us. As a visual artist who was self employed for 20 years before taking a full time job (which I enjoy) I am curious to know what drives people to people to create when the financial reward has been turned off. This is not about the musician or artist working as waitstaff hoping for their big break but about the landscaper, teacher or janitor who still makes art knowing that there is fulfillment in the creation rather than the recognition.
