A brief moment in time. That is all we get. We do not get a second chance at this moment. That is okay. This is going to be a brief post.
Life happens to most people. For artists, we have the choice. If we let life happen to us we lose our ability to create, to think, to push against the norms, we start to do the mundane, we see less of who we are and what we are capable of. It is up to us to take up the responsibility for living. We must be able not only to respond to what is happening but to play with it. To test the food, the toy, the waters and let others know what we have experienced even if it is only something we imagined.
I have some creative work and learning that will be filling my time for a while. What that means is I will be blogging a little less. It will be sporadic and probably a rumination on creativity. You see I have spent my whole life acknowledging that I am an artist, but never really devoting myself to this true persona of who I am. To be honest I am lost when I am not an artist. I am expressionless, I am void and helpless, I am looking to everything else to save me from the dry well I become. I fill my mind with “what ifs” and “Shouldas” When I take on my rightful mantel as an artist I may feel like a mad man, but I feel whole and right. I feel the north star, I do not have to look for it. I feel free.
Anyway, I thought I would let you know what is going on. When I have more to share on creative work, I will let you know.
