Confessions Pt. 10

"My hand is the extension of the thinking process - the creative process."- Tadao Ando. These are the Confessions of a Creative.

This gift, is always an adventure. One that you never expect but one which you always embrace. It incorporates both the highs and lows of your life to produce masterpiece after masterpiece. 

It's exhilarating and spontaneous. A constant mystery because you never know what's going to happen in your own mind.

So, what are my confessions?

Sometimes, I'm afraid to be me. Being a creative is automatically an opportunity for people to give their opinion about how weird you are. It is not always the most pleasant experience. In fact, most of the time it hurts.

I'm sensitive. About my work, my time, and ideas. Erykah Badu told an audience, "Keep in mind I'm an artist and I'm sensitive about my..". This can not be more true. As a creative your endeavors and projects become your baby. So, it's inly fitting that you feel some type of way about how it is handled.

I feel like I'm going insane.  Reality is never really reality. My mind races at the speed of light, ALL. DAY. LONG! Like, no joke. Sometimes my mind never rests, even in my sleep. Being creative is this constant thought process. I'm thinking of this or that, this color or that one, this melody or that one. It's almost like I'm going to burst sometimes. It worsens when I feel like I can not get an idea out on paper.

I'm always high. I've never done drugs but I've always been high off of creativity. I feel like I'm floating on clouds, in a state of total peace. It's dope, pun intended.

But it's great. Completely and totally, amazing. I know for a fact that there is no one on this earth just like me. I live, breath, and sleep that truth. Being a creative, though it can be tiring, is one of the most amazing feelings in this world. The fact that my mind is capable of always generating dope ideas, blows my mind.

Signed, A Creative.
