"By not speaking aren't you severely limiting your means of self expression?"
I think the person who asked me this question was referring to my silence and its effect on my art. To be honest, my interests lie purely in expression. I have no interest whatsoever in self expression.
Expression is pure, self expression is indulgence. I have neither the inclination or the wealth to achieve the level of self expression prescribed by our modern culture.
I have come to realize that much can be expressed with silence and i have lost very little by maintaining it.
