Meaty bundles of frenetic ideas

We are artists. 

And here’s what that means. 

We are always working on something, even if it isn't ready yet. We are driven by an ecstatic urgency to give rise to that which is new. We feel a deep yearning inside to make our vision happen. We want to make things forever, but not the exact same way forever. 

We have ideas floating around like some weather system inside our heads. We have the ability to take the most stupid of ideas and turn them into a plan. We create a different world to express the way we feel about this one. We chose to take our own creative urges more seriously than our doubt. 

We know how to attend unswervingly, moment by moment, to our work and ourselves. We will destroy what we’ve created in order to move forward. We commit to the creative life as an imperative as real as breathing. We build a space to allow ourselves to grow creatively. We focus on giving people our soul, not being good. We know the act of creation, not the creation itself, is what gives life meaning. And we trust our intuition when it tells us not to give up on things. 

We are artists. Meaty bundles of frenetic ideas stuffed into a cannon and shot through the particle accelerator known as our hands and hearts. 

It’s a beautiful job description, except for the fact that it’s not a job. 


How are you expanding into a larger definition of yourself as an artist?
