The Whole Point

13 Dec

The whole point is to push things forward. Comfort is not always a good thing. It’s nice but it is not all there is. Danger is a wonderful motivator. Fear is as well. It’s not enough to realize you’ve been wrong in the past, you must also realize you will be wrong in the future. Do not fear being wrong. Draw horrible pictures. Write trite bullshit. Sing awful awful awful songs. LOUDLY and out of tune. From these aberrations will come beauty. Or perhaps not. Regardless it means more to have tried to create something beautiful than to marvel at the beauty others have created all the while thinking you could never create something so wonderful. You might be able to. You might not. You probably won’t. You’ll probably end up a miserable failed artist. You’ll probably end up jaded and wretched. Why would you want to be anything else?
