“Everyone, every single person, has been a genius at least once. Everyone has winged it, invented, and created their way out of jam at least once.
If you can do it once, you can do it again.
Art, at least art as I define it, is the international act of using your humanity to create a change in another person. How and where you do that art is a cultural choice in the moment. No one wrote novels a thousand years ago. No one made videos thirty years ago. No one Twittered poetry three years ago.
There´s no doubt that certain sorts of art are easier to create. A warm smile to a stranger on an airplane at the right moment is an artistic endeavor that´s fairly easy for most of us to muster. Directing an Academy Award- winning film, on the other hand, is reserved for a select few. I´ll accept the fact that great novelists are born and made. But I don´t believe that you need to be an outlier to be an artist. “
