we live in a society that favours specialties and routine, systemizing a categorizing. when you exist more in openness and generalities, as what an artist embodies by default (and we’re all artists), you frequently run into walls, and attitudes, and perspectives that just don’t compute….
much of what we associate with identity is a puree of cumulative experiment, experience, genetics, environment and circumstance….
we really are magnificent, multifaceted creators. even when we’re least aware of it, the world around us is shaped by such subtleties that only the truly alert and aware could notice, usually much after the fact….
your country, your continent, the entirety of civilization that exists under the current ideas of economy and treaty and banking and trade…is not the whole world. get over yourself….
be your own source of strength. be wholly and powerfully you, so you don’t need to rely or depend on anyone – especially your partner, spouse, or would-be lover.
