The War of Art

See yourself as a professional (You, Inc.)


So I really didn’t see myself as a blogger.  I mean, I’ve posted to other people’s blogs for sure, but I figured having my own blog would take up way too much time when I could be busy creating– art, poetry, stories, etc.  But after creating and creating, I finally asked myself– What’s it all for?  That’s when I realized I need to practice sharing it and that one way to do that in the modern world is by creating an online presence.  Afterall, sharing is part of what it means to be human.  Of course, there are still going to be days when I want to hide out or hide my work under the bed, but I think I’m making progress by getting into the arena, so to speak.  I look forward to sharing my personal journey with you as well as any wisdom I discover about becoming an artist through meditation and practice.  Thanks for reading!
