Throughout history, some monkeys have developed a taste for alcohol from fallen fruit whose sugars have fermented. Today, these monkeys quench their appetite for alcohol by stealing it from humans. Just as some humans prefer soft drinks to alcohol, the same is true for monkeys. The percentage of heavy drinkers, moderate drinkers and nondrinkers in both humans and monkeys is amazingly in tandem. But unlike humans, heavy drinking monkeys are revered as better leaders, commanding more respect from their peers.
With a propensity for lenghty internal monologues, I have come to realize that nothing is new but merely appropriated from something else. There are no new ideas. Although this fact alone may be the source of eternal despair for any creative person, it is both humbling and inspiring. All I can aim to be is a maker - a maker of things; a maker of visual casseroles.
