I'm not going to lie my crazy cakes brain intensely craves awards, notoriety, milestones, and accomplishments with my forms of self expression. You might respect or admire that or you might want to tell me to change focus. Either way it is just a part of who I am to have these desires but I never want to get so goal oriented or commercial that I forget the catharsis, the meaning, the strange exhilaration and beautiful frustration of attempting to explain feelings, concepts and stories through my chosen outlets of self expression.
So I guess I just say all of this to say: let's create meaning..in whatever our outlet or medium, no matter the outcome.. Don't waste that pen stroke or image or story or melody or business plan. It doesn't always matter what happens to your creations...but it does matter and it is meaningful that you create.
