Hidden amongst the first page is the quote "Scar tissue is stronger than regular tissue, realize the strength, move on." Henry Rollins. I came across a scrap of paper I had jotted that on this morning!
I used to think I was just weird. I grew up and realized that I'm an artist, that seems to explain a lot.
I have this overwhelming love that wants to break free and express itself and change peoples lives, but I keep it locked away... really I'm not sure what would scare me more - failure or success...
I don't know what you would say if you saw me walking down the street, isn't that our normal first impression? I try to walk tall, I smile at people.
Art is what moves me, or perhaps creativity is the better word, as there are so many forms, art, music, cinema, cooking, a well put together outfit, the perfect pair of shoes, nature...
I wish that we as human beings could connect to one another more easily, I think that the more connected we are the further apart we grow. We are a click away at all times, yet the person in front of me is checking their phone, sending a text message, talking into miniscule adapters in their ears that make them seem to be having a conversation with god or another entity. I think if we talked about things with one another - the big things, the things that make us isolate ourselves, feel different, etc. we could make a difference in one anothers lives. I want people to share more.
I love to listen. I also love to be listened to. I have a few people who fulfill that second need but everyone wants a listener.
