The only time something ends is when no one does it, believes it, or even thinks about it. A craft, language, or art, doesn’t die until every practitioner stops their personal practice.
Whether a practice is dead or alive has nothing to do with the market – the popularity of a particular craft in the industries of media, education, or trade. Yet the power of the market deeply affects our perception of things. Don’t buy the hype.
Much is living that has been thought to be dead (or dying). Much is dying that is assumed to be alive.
Check yourself, check your sources, check the situation. Discern reality.
