To answer Brooke, I feel like everyone is born with a calling, and this calling is automatically attached to ambition. I do not think a calling can ever come to be without ambition because it's the fire: it's the passion. I do believe that ambition can be discouraged or just ignored to a point in which a person does not seem to have a calling.

I making art all the time, after five years it feels like its time to perform on platfrms that involve pay and reconition. Otherswise I coud keep on working in a supermarket three nights a week and live in a caravan! Live the dream.

As someone who wants a career in the arts, film to be exact, it's good to see another young artist who wants to be recognized and is not simply trying to make art for himself, but make art for an audience.

Wow! Brilliant portrait of an artist terrifyingly honest about what drives him; profoundly provocative ideas. Hmmm... I think I don't know about this kind of drive, ambition, calling. I wonder why? Was it never encouraged, never given free license and support? Was it shut down early in my life with dreams discouraged? Or later as the practical reality of having to "make a living" and "raise a family" pushed it aside. Or, was I born without it?

It used to affect it a lot but now at 57 I'm at a place where I'm happy to do what I'm doing without worrying or thinking about where it might take me.
