No, I think there is some truth to that, that artistic inclination will

the 90's and 2000's. I came back to it for reasons I couldn't justify
even to myself. I simply had to write songs. It didn't even matter if
I could find reason to tell myself why.

That happens now in big cities too. I live in Chicago, and I once saw
a man standing on a bus stop bench with a newspaper held up in one
hand, screaming at traffic as it drove by. People mostly just ignored
him. I don't know if he was an artist, but he was probably insane. :)
Still, it's probably better than the 50's when they used to use mental
patients for drug experiments and give them shock treatments.
