Each year, I look back at the one before and consider the changes that have happened in my life. One thing that has remained constant is my reverence of the arts.
I grew up with a mother who went to college graduating with a fine arts degree. She later went on to teach at an elementary school, a humble, but important job, in my eyes.
My father has always been a natural with creativity as well. He has done everything from woodwork, constructing rocking horses, skateboards and marionettes, to making jewelry and leatherwork. For a short while he had a tee-pee he had made erected in the back yard.
Even my mother’s brother is gifted, leaning toward graphic design, drawing ship and building designs, as well as painting wall murals and posters for town events.
All of this has influenced me.
I find now that I’m at a sort of impasse. I play piano, I paint and draw, I am a photographer, I love acting and singing. Where do I go?
Is it possible to encompass all of these things into my life and live successfully? Do I choose one over the others, or can I somehow manage all of these passions?
Art is so important for humanity. It’s expressive and it’s spiritual release. Without it, I feel we would be lifeless and robotic.
When you wake up, what’s the first thing you do? I think of art. I think of colors and music and costumes.
I may be making non-committal decisions right now, but I see myself one day making art in one form or another… Or many. Can that day come now?
