I guess I fall more towards Don's perspective on this. Especially if I place myself in Robert's predicament, I would give up the negs and, hopefully, my attachment to them, realizing the the act of creation is the prize - the fruits are just stuff. And, like all the other stuff here on the planet, including our bodies, it's just on loan.Quote:
