It’s been over a year since I posted thoughts, ideas, or press in this particular digital storefront window.
I haven’t been creatively dry during that time – more like adrift, periodically bobbing into project shores, and then floating back out to sea.
It’s hard to create joy and laughter when you see an almost endless stream of tears around the world. And for me, constantly using ANGER and OUTRAGE as inspirational fuel is much like powering a family camper with nitro, or playing handball with C4.
So I step back a bit, float, contemplate, or … sometimes for too long … close the shutters.
Not productive. Not self-sustaining. Not the way I wish to meet each day.
So, I’m back.
True I will not post on a daily basis because – as I said in a post some time ago – I enjoy the doing of things. And when you’re busy participating in life, you don’t always have time to comment on same.
Still, I’ll do my best.
The late actor, Jeremy Britt once told me that at certain times in his life he’d “felt like an empty vessel.” And in order to both portray a certain role, and to just live, he had to “fill it up” with elements of life.
I believe that may be true for all of us. Certainly it is for me.
To create art, one must live life. So as I am fond of saying to friends, family, and students … go forth and be brilliant.
