Me and Salieri

September 8, 2010

One of the hardest things to overcome as an artist is the small minded resentfullness that rises in your throat at the success of a colleague. It is so painful because their success highlights one’s own failures. Sometimes one is fortunate. The bile evapourates when one sees/reads their work. The work itself gives one joy. To see an example of this, watch the movie Amadeus especially the scene with Salieri and the priest.
