I'm not a fan of looking at the past year in review. Consider the pros and cons then move on. There is no real goal..only to live the best life you can. Creatives are fueled with a drive to make..and then to make it better..and in doing so to make others lives more interesting, colorful, thoughtful.
We create to keep fear and hate at bay..to find a safe place to be a little crazy and intuitive. Cooking, knitting, writing code..it's your little island of self.
So here's to less fear more trust..less hate more understanding..and as an artist if I can stir this all up and layer it onto a canvas that someone absolutely loves..then I've done my job. Cheers.
