A reader received this letter: Dear Sir, It is a belief that the truly creative person, within their spectrum of prior- ity, neglects the homeostasis and the mediocrity of planning for tomorrow, totally immersed in the conceptual trap of today.

Financial security provides the springboard to leave you free to share your talent with those less gifted in the Arts, but frequently skilled in other more mundane areas.

Being creative can be an all- absorbing, time-consuming business, but I would hasten you to give a little of your time to discuss in what ways your present and future financial require- ments can be planned and consolidated to leave you free to do what you do best!

I will be contacting you within the next few days to arrange a free, no obligation meeting, where we can dis- cuss your financial plans for the future in more detail.

I look forward to talking with you.
