Why do artists often feel like misfits, oddballs, wanderers? Could it be that we have forgotten that we belong in the borderlands, living a life filled with an inner flame, as poet Carl Sandburg said, that "the fireborn are at home in fire?"

This is an adaptation of a talk I gave at The Breath and The Clay conference in March 2021. This is a conference for people exploring the intersection of art and faith, and is also the host of the Makers & Mystics podcast (check it out!). Though this talk was given to an audience in a faith context, I believe that artists of any spiritual persuasion will receive something valuable here.
