i struggle with creativity;
not for the lack of it
but for deciding what ideas
to take from idea to reality
with the limited time i have
the poem above, I wrote at work, trying to figure what to spend my night working on. I have many theories of the meaning of life, and I do believe we are meant to be creators and problem solvers. I think the majority of the jobs in this country are pointless and mundane, leaving us all too drained to pursue hobbies, studies, or art.
I feel guilty each day I do not do something creative, and guilty even when I do create; because I am never sure if it was the right thing to spend my time on. It is a tragic system of disappointment in life. Having said that, I am extremely positive and optimistic and downright excited about the future.
I cannot wait to work on my next project, or learn new information. I do wish to avoid doing work for other people and avoiding distractions which entertain me without enriching me. There is a constant battle between artist and the modern world. Every generation the battle is different, but it is always there. I am just happy to be fighting for creativity and trying to convince others to do the same.
Make a creativity pledge to yourself. Create.
