Being an artist is a gift from God. The more I’ve been thinking about it the more I’m convinced of it. As an artist you have this gift to express a lot of stuff that’s going on either personally or spiritually. It’s not just getting something off your chest, it’s not just blogging or talking to your best friend about your problems, it’s making something beautiful or important or offensive, but either way it’s substantial and lasting. The offense in my life, I feel, is that I waste my life on a lot of the artificially beautiful instead of creating.
and I guess the evidence is that I’m sitting here blogging right now.
