Pool as Art

From Wikipedia entry on "art":

Generally art is a (product of) human activity, made with the intention of stimulating the human senses as well as the human mind; by transmitting emotions and/or ideas. Beyond this description, there is no general agreed-upon definition of art. Art is also able to illustrate abstract thought and its expressions can elicit previously hidden emotions in its audience.

Some people see pool as a sport. Some see it as a game. I see pool as art. Live "performance" art, as in Theater. Starring me. Every shot is different, and it's always unknown, until the final moment, whether the play is an epic tale of great struggle and great reward
, or a terrible tragedy.

It is my goal to enjoy every performance of the art of pool, and to enjoy the great reward.
