... everyone can direct!
Yes, but badly.
... I direct, but not sure that I am a director. Same could be said about writing, or painting. Activity, but not a profession? Why do I have such a feeling?
I do not like even the words -- Director, Writer, Painter... and, especially, Artist.

In the 17th and 18th centuries virtuoso had similar connotations of passionate involvement. [w]
