    The artist approaches the day’s work as one who embarks into another realm, walks away from the ordinary life and steps into the otherness that the artist dwells in, the place where reality becomes a set of malleable abstracts, like a cabinet of spices from which the artist draws weight and measure. It is in this place that the artist creates, and it is here that the concerns and energies of the ordinary life are not permitted. The first skill that the artist learns is to enforce the division between the artist life and the ordinary life. The division is easy, the vigilance is difficult.
