The greatest satisfaction of a creative lifestyle is in living on the edge of uncertainty. An artist is in constant, relentless pursuit of raw and unrefined dissonance. The exhilaration comes after blood, sweat and tears given for transforming the chaos into beautiful, meaningful, intentional resonance. The greatest fear of all is whether the intense struggle will fall on deaf ears and be for naught.
An Artist's Greatest Fear
My stomach revolts pre-consciously. I should feel encouraged change is on its way but all I feel is nausea
My voice chakra hurts, and my neck is in knots. I tried screaming out loud and my heart broke. I can’t understand why.
It’s like those childhood nightmares when your blood bursting scream is only a whisper. My voice is weak, but its not a dream.
I have to wonder if my work will be accepted or if the most terrible sound my body can make is only a whisper pointless and never heard.
Am I willing to give all of this devotion for vacant stares am I willing to work for honesty and maybe nothing else?
