When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.” -Audre Lorde
A recurrent concern in deciding to blog again has been the gazillion blogs in existence today. Insecurities fueled by self doubt, hindered by the belief that there is only so much “audience” to go around, I have chosen to keep things to myself. It is the perfect excuse not to write.
Calling bullshit on that TODAY.
As artists, all beings are the audience. What we create and emit is felt everywhere, by all things, whether or not direct consumption occurs. In choosing not to express, there is contribution to suffering. Art is merely the demonstration–the reminding–of the inherent freedom accessible to all. This grounded, collective view of creation negates the many fears associated with comparison.
All art is relevant.
