i want every creator that doesn’t have a circle of friends to help spread their work to know i’m rooting for you.
i know you’re too shy reach out, you’re too busy to make the connections, you just want to share your hard work, you want your work to stand on its own without politics and favoritism to sway opinions.
i also know you feel really alone most days.
try to remember your work is valid. it is good. it is worthy.
please don’t stop.
they might have “popularity” but you have something far more important: talent, skill, passion, and beauty. the truly gifted creators were never recognized during their time. the popular ones are all but forgotten now.
rivers ‘til i reach you || a playlist for early morning breeze and long drives through the woods.
so may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten (l i s t e n)
