Hi there all. Here I am!
I know it’s been a while since I posted and I’ll warn you, it’s about to get personal.
Something major happened in my life that was equally the worst and best thing that could have ever happened to me. The most influential and inspiring person I have ever met in my life left me, and I’m glad they got away. It was likely that I wouldn’t have changed had our relationship kept going. On the outside, it is entirely too easy to see how poorly I treated this person, and I wish nothing but the best for them moving forward. This really kicked my ass emotionally, mentally and existentially, and it’s time to pick myself up and commit to being a better, more self aware individual as I move forward.
Of course, the world has changed too. I see now that I have to double down on my creative projects and on signal boosting other’s projects that deserve a larger audience–the reason I started this blog to begin with. There is just too much going against a person trying to carve out a creative space for themselves, especially in times like these where the arts are suffering a substantial blow from authoritarian government edicts, and the palpability of modern Nazism and Nihilism (not that they were ever gone). Of course, I can only do this through actions and not words.
Expect more updates in the future, and in the meantime take care of yourselves.
