So I have had all of these thoughts jumbled up in my skull these last few weeks and I need to get them out into the great void. If you can't make sense of this you are probably not the one going crazy. Don't worry, I am. My mind is like the bubbles in a bottle of champagne. The more I'm shaken, the more I need to let my thoughts out. So here goes..... All creative people need something to rebel against. Talent helps, but it won't take you as far as ambition. Make your vision of where you want to be a reality. If, instead of making approval of things I ask myself, 'What's wrong with it? How can I make it better?' If I ask myself the right question, I know I will get the right answer. When it can't be done, do it. If I don't do it, it doesn't exist. If I cant solve certain problems I am facing, it's because I am probably playing by the rules. I need to constantly remind myself that failure is a major contributor to success. Knowledge comes from the past, so it's safe. It is also out of date. It's the opposite of originality. I need to give myself some more spin. How I perceive myself is how others will perceive me. I am on my own. Fly or Die. To be original, I need to seek my inspiration from unexpected sources. I will be true to my subject(s) and then I will be far more likely to create something that is timeless, not fashionable. That's where the true art lies. I don't have to be creative to be creative. I am on my own, just do it. Better.
