But that is "reincarnation" , too, like it is said in
Spiritism , by the french Allan Kardec.
Perhaps, you, Dave, were in some passed reincarnation
one of those guys of the ukio-e and was born now
and chose to do the same thing you did in your past
here. So, you went again look after (ok?) for repeating
your existence as a ukio-e, but now being free to make
for yourself, now we are uour boss.
Like Kardec says, it happens frequently with artists.

I wish I could be understood.

Thank you,

Best wishes

Only a man would wish to have been born in 1850. :-)

I'm old enough to remember when vacuum cleaners were a novelty ( rugs were beaten), washing machines had wringers, diapers were boiled, and ice boxes still had an iceman deliver daily chunks of ice in his horse drawn wagon. Housework back then was a major undertaking and that is what most women did day in and day out. No carving and printing for them. So I'm glad that I've lived most of my life during the later half of the 20th century.
