Obsession

I need to be completely obsessed with something in order to dedicate the full capacity of my ability to doing it. I'm not at all obsessed with my job; in fact, I find it to be a nuisance most of the time. But I am obsessed with making art. That involves thinking about my own work, thinking about the work of others, planning new work, executing new work, and trying to show it to people. I'm doing one or more of these things constantly, and often lamenting that I don't have nearly enough time to do everything I want to do.
