I find that when you sink your teeth into something that you’re genuinely passionate about, it becomes almost an entity in itself. That is to say that you breathe enough life into something it becomes practically self sustaining. Then you take on the role of caretaker to make sure it can keep functioning in the way you designed it. So it can continue to serve its purpose. The purpose you created it for, whether that be to inspire people or to entertain people, and you get to enjoy it yourself.
That is what my intention is here. I want to put in enough work and enough effort, so that you may find yourself inspired or at the very least entertained. I can’t even put into words how much entertainment and inspiration I myself have gotten from this world. I feel it is only my duty to try and contribute what I can of that same essence into the world. Without Art I truly don’t think there would be much love in this world. Not in the way that you hear a song and can recall your childhood, or see a painting and think of your lover, or to read a book and be transported to a whole new world.
I think there would be a lot less intrigue as well. Less inclination to give any more of yourself than what was minimally required. So with that, I am here to say, I am giving more of myself than is required. To bring you The Gathering. I am giving it my all, and my everything, and I can’t wait to share it with you. The book itself should be completed this weekend. Then I will edit, and then I will perfect. Once all that is finished, it will be yours to consume, and mine to be proud of.
Until then; stay inspired and love all kinds of art. Oh, and be weird. It gives others the permission they don’t give themselves to actually express what’s inside. At least it does for me, so maybe I’m just crazy.
