Make art regardless of fame

In releasing your thought debris onto the internet, two questions may hold you up:

  1. Will anyone will read it?
  2. Will anyone care?

They certainly won’t read it if you don’t post it. And two, no one will ever care as much as you. That’s a guarantee.

So, why wouldn’t you just drift into the freedom of expression?

Creative practice is the goal, the maker just happens to be found.

Said artist Auguste Rodin, “Fame is no more than the sum of all the misunderstandings that gather around a new name.”

Fame is no more than the sum of all the misunderstandings that gather around a new name.

Use your craft as an unconscious guide with no goal in sight other than a search for deeper self-awareness and understanding.

There’s no guarantee you’ll ever be found — so why not just make more anyway even if it’s in your own cacoon of creativity?
