Then it means that what you really enjoy is talking to yourself. Your first, visceral reaction to an artwork is everything. That's fine, just not the way I work.

I happen to appreciate some pieces even more when I am told or shown something new about them, something that I'd never have thought of be myself. It's more like a dialogue, really or at least an interaction.
Mais je porte accroché au plus haut des entrailles
À la place où la foudre a frappé trop souvent
Un cœur où chaque mot a laissé son entaille
Et d’où ma vie s’égoutte au moindre mouvement
