I have gotten out of the habit of coming here and putting down my thoughts.
I tried rebooting my blogging practice but it kind of fizzled out after the first attempt.
I like blogging. At least I used to. I liked the community that gathered around my blog but when blogging became all about people having a business and needing to promote their business then I jumped ship
I like meeting people from all over the world who stop by and leave comments and invite me to see their blogs.
I especially liked making contact in the digital realm with other artists . That was the best.
I liked wandering around exotic cyber cities meeting like minded souls and cheering them on in their creative adventures–
But I got disillusioned and then I got distracted by the real world and it’s many demands and I forgot to come back through the portal to this magical intertwining world of the inter webs.
I realize that I miss this world where we bump into one another and connect without really ever meeting.
I like that we send our thoughts through cyber-ether
and keep each other company and take inspiration from each other.
I like imagining this kind of comic book extended reality
where we open a door and disappear into a beautiful realm–
a place where we connect with fellow travellers .
My purpose is always the same and that is to keep going
making and creating and dreaming
and getting my work out in the world
even when there is so much evidence
that there is no point to any of it.
My audience is always the folk- who like me are plugging away and
sometimes losing hope and getting lost or confused
about the purpose of art making.
I am always here talking to myself about the very same things–
the commitment, the need to make art–
and the joy and pain of it all.
I am always talking to those slightly mad loopy people like me crazed sometimes
with their own thoughts and wanting to share them
with those that might understand.
So I am going to yet again take another crack at this blogging thing.
Is it still a thing? I don’t even know.
Anyway. Here’s a new piece.
