I don’t understand how artists can have one outlet. It’s seems like every 3 months I move to a different medium. Now I have the urge to move back to this domain and write.
If I could have it my way, I’d have a website with personal thoughts, another with travel writing, and a final one with artist interviews. Then I’d have a photography page where I post pictures. I’d also have an active Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and Facebook where I was involved with the community.
That’s ultimately what I want: involvement with the community. No matter where I go, I seem to have a desire to talk and communicate with others. Deep down, that’s what I want. But, when push comes to shove, I don’t put myself out there. I just toss my work out to my 500 different sites/mediums. When I get bored with one, I just go to the next, yearning for clearer communication.
See this is nice. Just writing. There’s no complications, only pure expression of thought. It’s easy.
I want to have a center space, where all the mediums I use can merge. One page that has my writings, paintings, photographs, drawings, videos, and everything else. The difficulty is that none of it matches. Some days my art is depressing, on others it’s light and bright.
Lately I’ve been writing about traveling and the places that I’ve explored – but that doesn’t match with my other ramblings. Usually I give advice or talk about Buddhism. Or I just mindless write like this. And goddammit it’s nice to just write.
Maybe I should just drop off from social media for a while and consolidate everything to one space. Deactivate my Facebook and take a break. Even the thought releases tension in my shoulders. That’s when you know you’ve been spending too much time with social media – when the thought of leaving it brings relief and hope.
