One Year Later

A year later and things certainly don't look any rosier; at least not in terms of what is happening in the world.

A year ago I was afraid and that was before Donald Trump was going to be president. 

A year later and yes, I am still struggling with anxiety. I still fear the future. I am still avoiding the news.

However, the actual events of the past year have actually been really wonderful for me personally. 

Career-wise, this year was probably the biggest of...

Unfortunately the overwhelming sense of impending doom and chaos in the world has not improved much in the past couple of months. The hardest part about this generalized anxiety is that I am not the only one experiencing it. It is harder to move past the fear when it is validated in others.

Now that I have been able to significantly reduce the amount of stress in my day-to-day life, an interesting side effect has occurred. Now that life TODAY is so good and I have come to terms with the issues of my past I find myself continually distracted by fear for tomorrow.

Ironic, isn’t it? I finally get to a point in my life where I am happy and functioning and I end up handicapped by general anxiety about what might happen.

What Is Art

Art is your expression of the meaning of life. Art is how you express your experience on this earth.

I have been doing a lot of thinking about why my art doesn’t resonate with very many people. Is it because I have no talent? I cannot answer that. The very definition of the word “talent” is subjective. Is talent the natural ability to do something? Is it the ability to do it better than most? Differently than most? Or is it all of those things and yet still something m...
