talent is a mistress

Feeling some changes and good things all around coming up. Funny how creativity flows in and out like the tide sometimes. It's a wonder what turns it on and off. Then I remembered this little blurb from The Courtyard Hounds. Of course I hope talent or rather creativity will never leave but still an interesting thought. 


"TALENT MUST BE A FANATICAL MISTRESS. SHE'S BEAUTIFUL. WHEN YOU'RE WITH HER, PEOPLE WATCH YOU, THEY NOTICE BUT SHE BANGS ON YOUR DOOR AT ODD HOURS AND SHE DISAPPEARS FOR LONG STRETCHES AND SHE HAS NO PATIENCE FOR THE REST OF YOUR EXISTENCE: YOUR WIFE, YOUR CHILDREN, YOUR FRIENDS. SHE IS THE MOST THRILLING EVENING OF YOUR WEEK BUT SOME DAY SHE WILL LEAVE YOU FOR GOOD. ONE NIGHT, AFTER SHE'S BEEN GONE FOR YEARS, YOU WILL SEE HER, ON THE ARM OF A YOUNGER MAN AND SHE WILL PRETEND NOT TO RECOGNIZE YOU."

Photos taken by me on the ferry to Water Island looking back at St. Thomas after a night of drinks.
Happy Moments.
