I feel there’s so much pressure on artists nowadays to ~be something~, like all musicians have to end up at Juilliard, all artists have to have their work on display in the MET, all writers have to be best selling novelists, that sort of thing. And while it’s necessary to dream big and work hard, it’s also completely valid to just create your art for no other reason than the simple fact that it makes you happy. You don’t have to be giving it 100% all the time, in fact, it would be really easy to get in an artistic rut that way. Take breaks- go for a walk around your city or in nature, spend time with your friends, exercise, relax, do anything that will clear your mind so you can come back to your art with fresh inspiration and passion. We need to remember that our art doesn’t define us, on the contrary, it is US that defines our art. Art cannot be incredible without a unique, human touch behind it. We give art life. Each time we create something, part of our soul is present in it. So take care of yourself first, your art will be the better for it.
I feel like Taako would be, and is, really good with kids. And it's really amusing to his friends and family because they can quite see he actually adores kids despite his objections. I mean Taako teases Angus, but Angus knows he's teasing, and Taako was never downright shitty to the boy. Also people make posts joking about how Taako would act when he visits his wizarding school, but i honestly don't think he'd pull the same schtick with children as he does with Merle and Magnus and other [1/3]
