Advantage, Distance, Happiness

The only advantage that any artist has, the only thing that any artist can really write about, and all artist do write about, whether they know it or not, is that distance from the world. Some realize it and some do not realize it. I do realize it and I know that I obtain it through media. And I know that I would have been very unhappy as a nineteenth century man.
