" my view, fewer women than men are drawn to the self-limiting or even self-mutilating obsession that artistic careers often demand."

"In many ways, art is a beautiful delusion. One has to be willing to sacrifice everything to create an alternate universe."
- Camille Paglia

I was reading "edge" the magazine of the University of the Arts. The story was about what has held women artists back from ranking with Michelangelo or Picasso.

It made me think about something I never thought about before.

"...most women do seem, for whatever reason, to be more empathetic and less aggressively confrontational than most men. Attacking the establishment and trying to topple and destroy cultural idols is more a male than female style." - Camille Paglia

It's time to walk the walk.
