When a person reacts profoundly to our work, we're validated in having made a contribution to the world. It's why most of us create. Some of us attain commercial success, some of us do not, but few enter this profession expecting making millions to be our ultimate goal. One might say we aim too low. (Starving artists?) I say we artists aim higher -- much higher -- by uplifting, creating joy, and bringing beauty into being. You can't put a price tag on those things. And most of us, thank goodness, would never want to.
