In Bill Rice’s New York Times obituary,  writer Larry Mitchell, described Rice as “interested only in happenstantial fame, rarely traveling more than a few blocks from his home.”

I get a hard time from many friends, for fitting that description pretty much exactly, as an artist. Whatever success I have feels happenstantial.

happenstance (plural happenstances)
    (countable) A chance or random event or circumstance. 
    (uncountable) The chance or random quality of an event or circumstance.
