Engineer To Artist?

A man who works with his hands is a laborer; a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman; but a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist.”

Yes, I believe this sentence very much. Few days back, it was a saturday, I was returning after my TT game. I heard some drums and music and somehow I was driven to that chaos. To my surprise I saw 4 guys, 2 playing guitars and the other 2 playing drums. Drums made of all the waste household material. And I couldn't believe what I was hearing!! So much of enthusiasm, so much of vigor, such a perfection and so much of passion.. The output was simply mind blowing! I dont understand music much but can surely point out if somethings out-railed. But, these guys had an amazingly synchronized and disciplined performance.. These were THE Artists.

That moment I realized, Passionate people inspire me. I always find artists passionate. No doubt, I always wished to be an Artist.
Being an Engineer, I came across many intelligent brains, talented people, smart asses. But trust me, no one inspired me as much as I got inspired by a road painter, right across the corner, sketching a tree! He was deeply involved in his thoughts and his sketching and his work. Ah! I wished if I could feel what he was feeling.

Can I wish to have THIS feeling forever?
Can I do ONLY those things which I LIKE?
Will I be able to satisfy my thirst of becoming an artist?

Time has all the answers.
