for the right kind of pilot to come."

So true. Anyways, I realized today that I probably haven't done anything really productive in my entire life. I'm talking about something that really, really mattered. I'm working on fixing that. Involvement in politics and volunteering mostly constitutes for my contribution to society. It doesn't seem like much though.

I guess that's kinda my curse though, any artistic person produces things that they care about. However, the nature of their calling is in and of itself intangible. So, there are no solid rewards. Perhaps kind words from admirers (of which I personally have none), family, or friends. But, for the most part it kinda seems like one of those "pie in the sky" things. Very awesome, hard to actually reach. Impossible, really because art is something that is constantly nagging. It grows with you, it lives in you. It's a lifestyle, truly.

Anyways...that's my two cents. Oh, and I think that the guys from Savage Garden would definitely constitute as poets in my book. Not most lyricists would, but they do. Absolutely.

I like your thoughts here =D, Thanks for your comment on my blog. All minds are interesting, i think, and all souls the same depth. Alas, the Garden have broken up, and gone their repsective ways, the journey over for them. Now, hopefully each won't get trapped in that quagmire of rehashed formula pop songs.....cheers to the lighthouse keepers....smithy

Leonard Cohen...very good poet.

You are right about declaring your own stuff "insignifigant". Truly, perception is everything. And I do value what I have, just sometimes I feel bad. It's my little "depression" schtick and I'm getting better about it, but sometimes I relapse. =D
