Being an Artist
I will be an artist today and speak what is my innermost truth, share what is in my mind and heart. An artist’s job is both to reflect and lead. It is only when I am willing to be honest that I am close to my own art. Art is not about being right. If it were, I would never create. I will decode life in my own way today and express myself as me.
I will be me.
Nobody really knows why we’re here, obviously. There
are big pieces missing from the pictures offered us by science
and religion. Based on our present knowledge, the
whole thing simply doesn’t make sense. But what’s so
wonderful is that we want it to make sense. and our
need for meaning drives us relentlessly to create. Cave
paintings, totem poles, villages, cathedrals-it is a
never-ending process. Sometimes I think we have become
the creative gods and goddesses of our myths and dreams.
If we do have a purpose, maybe it is to join with the evolutionary
process through our complex artistic creation.
Our stories and poems and lasers are as significant as
diamonds or gold or angelfish.
