“Romantic in the original sense of the word, meaning having a belief in empath, in a way that Wordsworth had, or Turner, Rembrant, Velasquez.

                                        …Empathy means living in something til yourself is forgotten.

                                                                          The self is a barrier. That’s why art is more than self-expression”
