some heavy stuff
I don't want anyone to ever think just because I show some of my artwork or my life that I think what I live or do is more fabulous or exciting than anyone else's. What I mean by that is a lot of the time I'm just sharing. I started this blog because I moved away from my friends and family. They wanted to still be a part of my life, even if we weren't in the same location. Many people share things with me all the time too, whether they be visually or audibly. I also don't want anyone to think that when and if you decide to share, that I'm gonna spread your business all over the world. I really do try to respect other people's privacy. Yes, I am open about a lot of my life, but that doesn't mean I am open about everything. Sometimes I leave details out because I want to. I don't appreciate other people asking or prying about certain things I don't want to share. Like what do you mean by that? Maybe I want you to come up with your own interpretation. Or who exactly is that? What is their name, and blah, blah, blah. If I want to tell you then I will, please respect that, and don't continue digging. I look at my life as a journey of me trying to learn and grow all the time. Sometimes things are dirty, messy, sad, and disappointing. It's like that for everyone. None of us are immune, and if so they are lying to you or themselves. We are all amazing unique individuals with differences. The world would be a boring monochromatic place without these things we can learn from each other. I believe that many of us have more in common than we realize. That's what this sharing and attempts at connectedness is all about. Now back to my altered pgs. I don't necessarily like or love everything I create. None of the things I try, turn out the way I envision or want them to. Sometimes I think my work or attempt is only okay, but I am still trying to learn from it. That's how I feel about these pgs. Sorry if that was all too heavy for you. I felt like it needed to be expressed. I'm done talking now.
