"When I listen to a symphony I love, I don't get from it what the composer got. His "Yes" was different from mine. He could have no concern for mine and no exact conception of it. That answer is too personal to each man. But in giving himself what he wanted, he gave me a great experience." - The Fountainhead 

Each will derive something different from a work of art, speech, poem, or theatrical piece. Everyone's "yes" moment is unique to only them. I've recently encountered many people attempting to proclaim an artist's true intention. One will never know. Sometimes the "yes" is in the process and not the product. Creating for the enjoyment of the process and your own personal "yes" is a solid driving factor - a reminder of why we create. For me, the above is capitol in the creation and consumption of art.
