If you want to write, if you want to create, you must be the most sublime fool that God ever turned out and sent rambling. You must write every single day of your life. You must read dreadful dumb books and glorious books, and let them wrestle in beautiful fights inside your head, vulgar one moment, brilliant the next. You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads. I wish you a wrestling match with your Creative Muse that will last a lifetime. I wish craziness and foolishness and madness upon you. May you live with hysteria, and out of it make fine stories — science fiction or otherwise. Which finally means, may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.

MY 'BEING'

BIL1a Being In Landscape Track

kakeafield asked what inspires me as an artist?

I think artists are very selfish! So much is about them, their creations come from their ‘self’ trying to understand or connect with the life around them – it is so for me! I used my art for many years in therapy, I still use it post-therapy. I am searching for a more authentic self in this world – Being in Landscape. I wonder if I will ever find ’me’? The search is the important thing though!

So, I’m going to get back into modeling soon. Aside from acting, I think it would just help everything I have going on and what I still want to accomplish. I also think that much like acting, having certain pieces of wardrobe/clothing are key to own. It’s like with acting casting calls, you are required to arrive dressed as the character or they ask you if you have any clothing that relates to the character. Sometimes the gig does not provide clothing or wardrobe, even seemingly high-end gigs. I’ve tried to get around not having much clothing for shoots and things because I simply cannot buy piles of special clothing, but it is an annoying problem to have regarding this art form. I used to think that certain gigs would provide clothing for actors or models, but as I have seen over the years is that a lot of my friends and colleagues already have certain pieces of clothing. It would be key to know this information as soon as possible to avoid holding out not doing fun things because you think certain things just come to those who have experience, they don’t. Anybody of any background seems to just already have things sometimes and then they apply and snag the interview.

Happy Sunday, Happy Thoughts..

Today is a great day to be thankful and blessed. A great time to be reflective of your purpose and work towards ultimate fulfillment. To look in the mirror and be in awe of yourself. To bask in your magnificence. Your uniqueness, originality, beauty, glow, etc. Everything that you are makes you everything that you are not. You are a gem.

What a feeling it is love and acknowledge yourself. To be in love with yourself. The FACT that you were wonderfully made and have since then, transformed into the wonderful being that you are today. That you dare to be happy. You are amazing!

Create something. Put great thoughts and ideas into the atmosphere. Let the world see a glimpse into your glamour. A page or two into you. Be contagious today. Be nothing short of amazing.
