I’m experiencing an intensely difficult day/week/month/year & I wish I knew how to open up to you all about it, other than through art, but I know I’m in no way alone & that gives me strength. I can be awfully silent at times, as I tend to turn inward, but I’m always listening & we’re all in this thing together. I love you all… Truly, madly, deeply. Thank you for your support, especially when I don’t know how to ask for help & try to just brush it off. Here is a quote that always helps lift me up…
“To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never
get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life
around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its
lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is
simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try
and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.” — Arundhati Roy, The Cost of Living
A person is a fluid process, not a fixed and static entity; a flowing river of change, not a block of solid material; a continually changing constellation of potentialities, not a fixed quantity of traits.
