" the next iteration "


i've had this version of this blog since 2006, and began it in 2003. as i look deeply back into the archives, i see a person questioning the nature of everything. questioning the Self, life, love, paths to follow or divert away from.

and over these past 9 years, i feel that i've grown, expanded, flourished, been challenged, and become more the artist and overall person i wish to exist as.

to constantly be making and seeing, delving and exploring, inspired and inspiring.

and i hope that as this version of this outlet comes to a close, the you'll find your way to the next.

i'm not sure that the format is as robust as this one, but we must always be open to evolution, to shifts, to change when it presents itself, and be prepared to make the necessary moves at that time.

to this end, i have been preparing myself all along. i wanted to be a better person, so i did my best to do so. i've have many gaffs and hiccups along the way, and those dips in my better judgement have helped me to strive for more compassion, trust, humbleness, and to be more...just more.

i wanted to be a better artist, so i challenged myself to shoot more, draw more, express myself more, be bold, be proud, own my failures as well as my successes. move on and forward and outward and reach everyone that i can with my outstretched fingers, and when i reach that limit, reach everyone i can online and on and on and on.

and when you make it a priority to share and be in the world, everything suddenly presents itself. it's a beautiful time that we find ourselves in, in every wake of every moment. this time, our time, shared and endlessly hurtling.

tonight's homework:

reach out to someone that inspires you and let them know what they mean to you. make sure that it's honest, true, heartfelt, and real. make bold statements and if possible, list all the many reasons why they mean so much to you in your personal and professional life.

and then open yourself up to the potential of a response. take the most care out there.
