There’s much speculation about where we go after we die and some think it’s a black void of nothingness. Some people believe in the afterlife and heaven… I’m more inclined to believe that our spirit does go on and that we even have the chance to return if we choose to. There have been many movies about it and one of my favorites is When Dreams May Come where you get to create your world. I’d like to be able to do that and I think that stems from being an artist. We see things in a different way, we often see more and we like to share that with the world.
I find myself reflecting that more as I gain age… except I try not to think about how long I have left and just try to figure out what I want to do and how to do the things I want to do. You’ll find that you have less regrets if you do the things that you want to do in life, take those chances, try and learn new things.
One of Bowie’s classic songs, Changes has been one of my favorites.
I try to push myself away from the safe places in my life. I don’t want to have this as is or get monotonous so I push my limits. That’s part of who I’ve always been. A try this person or do that, explore, learn and grow. And I believe that others should push themselves go do more and see possibilities in life.
