"Something in me is a little guilty that I am not contributing to society 
something in me wants to
honestly." You already are. The modern world is a series of reflecting mirrors on images upon empty images; you make something tangible and meaningful. Just because it isn't physically tangible in the way of a car doesn't make it any more less important. Our psychological realities make no such distinctions. I can go on, I only have 46 characters left.

Thank you.  ( I have to admit “any more less important” makes me smile…just the wording, I can’t help myself. )

Anyway,

Someone else mentioned how art separates us from other animals.  I really like this.  I mean, just like human touch and love is necessary to a baby for survival…

( nearly as vital for sustaining life as food, rest and water http://www.livestrong.com/article/72120-effect-human-contact-newborn-babies/  http://www.nytimes.com/1988/02/02/science/the-experience-of-touch-research-points-to-a-critical-role.html &nbsp )

…art gives our daily lives reason to go through the necessary motions for survival.

Art gives survival meaning

Artists are contributors
