Mormon, Baptist, Jew, Agnostic, Atheist, Catholic, Muslim, Sihk, Gay, Straight, Black, White, Brown, Purple etc. (not listed in order of importance btw but Mormon IS number 1 on MY list…just sayin”) This one’s for YOU!
Wanna know something? Everyone can create! And I’m not just talking about the sexy dance of procreation 🙂 I’m talking about being an artist. Making something beautiful. Something of value. Something of substance…
We can’t all be this girl:
(Natasha with her guitarist Luca)
Or this man:
(Mark Twain for those who don’t read in this digital age)
Or this guy:
(been hanging out with Mike Tyson lately, Vincent?)
And we DEF can’t all be this woman:
(She’s obviously amazing and is helping the human race not go extinct, but I don’t want to be her anyways…..)
BUT WE CAN ALL CREATE! WE ARE ALL ARTISTS! I’M YELLING OUT OF JOY NOT ANGER…Enough with the caps-lock…
This beautiful German man says it better than I ever could (and that’s saying something!)…..

“You may say ‘I am not the creative type.’ If that is how you feel, THINK AGAIN.”
How do YOU create?

*might be my best blog post yet….
Sadly, this famous painting by Edvard Munch captures the general feeling/ psyche/uncertainty/insecurity/depression/ spirituality/ identity/crisis of many people not only of the time when it was painted at the turn of the 19th century, but also of many people today in 2013. There have been times in my own life when I could photoshop my own face into that distorted figure and call it a self-portrait. So what is to be done? No easy answer, but here’s a thought: no matter your religion/ beliefs/ camp/political leaning, let’s at least try to show some love, respect, and kindness to try and ease that feeling a little. And maybe sometimes we can dance in the parking lot 🙂
