As I meet the New Year and all the cultural messaging around self-discipline, I'm resolute in my own way: to preserve January as a sanctuary for reflection.
Well-adjusted sounds fucking boring. So very vanilla. Especially where creativity is concerned. A creative mind might never be well-adjusted.
As a creative, we push the boundaries. We rub people the wrong way, but dance between that and our desire for acceptance.
As long as the effort is applied from a place of compassion and service, the cultivated skills of an artist can be a gateway to a higher understanding.
