Alles war mir zu Eng

Sometimes other roles in life require us to wear costumes other than that which we'd prefer to don.

But artists, I feel, have a responsibility to shuck all constraints of societal expectations, non?  Are we not the either appointed or self-appointed sayers of truth? Or at least our vocal versions of it?

Who else is going to do that kind of work, willingly? :)  

No, seriously, most of western society is truly supportive of arts, generally, mostly.  Maybe just the people I hang out with.  But that's one of the most wonderful things about living in Germany; they LOVE their artists.

With Gratitude,
