Hello my Dottlings!
Let’s stretch the word art beyond its normal bonds? I want to know what you do to release the impulse to create. Maybe, you don’t create for other people. Maybe, you create experiences for yourself. There is serenely an art to traveling or collecting. What have you invested in that is in at least some part more for you than other people?
I didn’t get a lot of encouragement to start making videos or become a professional psychic. In fact, my parents were concerned that I would put too much into my “hobbies” and not enough into building a real career for myself. Jokes on them.
That’s not to say you should or even can capitalize on what you do for your own peace of mind. It’s pretty obvious I wasn’t going to make enough to live on reading cards at a backwoods bar. I just couldn’t deny myself the outlet. It was exciting and a little scary. More importantly, they give me a way to process the world.
Ultimately, art is a way of expressing ourselves. Let me know in the comments how you express yourself. Do you knit, or ride a motorcycle? What do you enjoy about it?
