It's almost a rite of passage for the middle-aged, it seems, to invent generational stereotypes for dumping on the young.
People think of me as a stereotype: muse, privileged, decorative. Classically, the muses were the inspiration. They'd come and go - they wouldn't actually make things, get their hands dirty. I don't think I'm a muse, although I think I can help pull a trigger. I really like getting my hands dirty.

Attempting to get at truth means rejecting stereotypes and cliches.
