"Spittin' Snake and Hissin' Pussy" Blues

William Mortensen on the attention grab:
"Why does an artist paint pictures, write symphonies, carve statues, tell stories? Is it because he finds joy and spiritual release in the mere doing of these things? Probably; but this is not the whole story. Is it because he makes his living after this fashion? No doubt; but there is still more to it than this.
Here is the third reason. It is a very significant reason, though it is generally disregarded. The artist persists in being an artist because he revels in the feeling that he may affect or influence people by his work. He does not demand approbation, but he does demand *notice and response.* The thought that he may through his work influence people and strike past their defences to their secret emotions gives him a gratifying sense of power."
