"I used to find that idea of an ever changing, impalpable style appealing, but now I want to concentrate on the things I ought to be doing, the things that only I can do. The result I hope will be works that like the Buddhist statues of the past will be capable of communicating with people for centuries to come."
Are you doing the creative work that you ought to be doing — that only you can do? In today's world it is easy to get sidetracked and caught up in projects that have nothing to do with our true work. There are many people and things that demand our attention and time. If you don't know what creative work you are supposed to be doing it is easy to get lost. Do you have a vision of the work that you should be doing? Do you stay focused or are you easily distracted?
Will the creative work that you are doing still be communicating to generations to come? Or will your work be forgotten as soon as you leave this world? No one can predict which poems, or paintings or sculptures will last for centuries and which are meant for the dustbins of time. Many artists and writers dream and hope that their creative works will give them immortality.
