I read something recently that I keep thinking about. I read in the Balinese language, there is no word for "art" or "artist." The reason, apparently, is that people in Bali view the creation of beautiful things as a natural part of life, and something that everyone does. It is such a part of every day activities that it's not necessary to have a special word for it.
Isn't that lovely? Makes me think that some of the "who is an artist" or "is quilting art or craft" discussions seem rather silly.
