It seems I may have gotten a bit lazy about updating my page.
On the other hand, it could be that I am getting somewhat more ambitious about my career goals and writing has been, sadly, a lesser priority. As much as I love writing, it’s not my career choice. This doesn’t change one of my long-term goals of writing a book….someday.
What career goals are be keeping me so busy?
Besides my two jobs, which keep me pretty busy, I am keeping my hands busy in clay.
Creating new bodies of work is exhausting when you find yourself always trying to buy a little time for solitude, music, and clay. My most important goal is to develop artwork that makes sense and work which communicates what I have, for so long, been trying to say. That in itself has been psychologically daunting because, inevitably, this incorporates some introspection. As insightful as this process is, it is gut-wrenching when it’s not common practice.
Naturally, my next goal is to show my work, because what is the point in divulging if not to spark a conversation about it. This takes some social skills which I am constantly trying to improve. It includes going to galleries, meeting other artists and curators, applying for artist opportunities, and maintaining social media updated among others.
Speaking of artist opportunities brings me to other goals: find a residency (or a few) to help me grow artistically while preparing myself to find an MFA program that will take me. This takes some research, preparation, and inspiration as well.
In the time left over for the rest of my life, I try to be with family, read a book, finally learn to play the guitar, travel, organize my kitchen, and feed myself.
It’s no wonder to myself that I can’t seem to hop on the computer to write another post. It doesn’t mean I have stopped going to see art or even talking about it with others. I am fascinated by the depth of learning throughout life, it’s a deep like the ocean floor and as detailed as marine life.
Still, I want to take readers on a journey of my life immersed in the arts. One of the reasons I started this blog. It might get a bit redesigned but its core will remain the same. In the meanwhile, I will attempt to post more often which means more post will be simply photos of my interesting daily events. There are so many good things happening and worry not, I will keep anyone reading updated!!
[Oh, and thanks for reading!]
