It’s Monday! I have a few more artworks to share, and I also just wanted to write something here to say hi. For the past while–a long time, actually, like over a year–I have been feeling very conflicted about my own creativity. When I was younger, I never thought I’d be this way; I knew people who sometimes expressed these feelings and I didn’t get it. Feelings of not wanting to bother creating, because it didn’t matter, because it would not change anything.
I think it’s incorrect that “art” (or whatever we do) doesn’t change anything. Most crucially it changes you, the one making it. And that should be enough… no? Understand that I conclude this now, blogging here after days of trying to decide whether it would be “worth it” to blog. Guess I’m just still trying to understand what I’m scared of, what I have to lose by just writing/blogging/expressing.
Regardless, I am grateful to my past self for starting this site so I have a place to go.
