Art inspires artists, and I think a different form of art (different from the genre you/I/others are creating in) is especially inspiring. I feel as though I want to write after watching good movies or listening to “This American Life” oftentimes. When I used to do a lot of photography, I would often dream music (crazy, but I composed a few tunes and songs like that). Maurice Sendak loves Mozart, lots of musicians inspired by visual artists, etc. Glad you’re getting close to feeling a bit of resolution/finish to Monte, at least for now, and I know that there are many, many more stories you have to tell.
