Honesty + Humanity
Making Something Important
What makes something important?
Art and writing can be imperfect. Perfectly flawed, like humanity.
I don't think you can make something meaningful unless you bring complete, vulnerable truth to it. Put it out there and say, 'this is the pure, ugly, beautiful, chaotic truth.' Even when it feels like it's clique, over used, or overstated.
No, it's not.
Someone else might have said it, but not in a way that YOU can say it. It's important to remember that, when your making things, or doing whatever it is that you do.
Making art is important. It's the shelf we sit our heavy hearts. It's the place we build ourselves up from, a flame we can light our candles with. Torches passed from country to country until they light a beacon of unity. Unity in Humanity.
We are imperfect beings,
and we are flawlessly flawed.
But someone else needs to hear the story,
so they can get through it,
or see something
or carry another torch.
If you're not dead, keep going.
If you get killed, walk it off.
What you do is important.
Go latch onto what holds you up. Make something else.
Somebodies world might depend on it.
I salute you, fellow artist.
