That’s one word for it. Reply Tetman Callis says: August 11, 2012 at 5:32 am CJ, what’s another? Reply Averil Dean says: August 10, 2012 at 5:31 pm Damn. I missed my calling. Reply Tetman Callis says: August 11, 2012 at 5:33 am Averil, a person gets lucky. Reply CJ says: August 13, 2012 at 5:00 pm Another word for the sensibility described is artist. And I’m not afraid or ashamed to call myself one. Reply Tetman Callis says: August 14, 2012 at 6:35 am This is good. For reasons not worth going into here but not unlike many persons’ reasons, for a long time I had difficulty identifying myself as an artist. Add to that the perversion of American culture with its message that you’re not something unless it’s how you make your living. I prefer the Nietzschean stance. Reply CJ says: August 14, 2012 at 11:53 am Tetman, I am all about the over soul, the Nietzschean energy and the Nietzschean stance.
