I don’t think that this has gotten in my way through the years with any of my art. I don’t do it for them I do my art to express myself. Besides that most of my friends and family are very supportive of my photography, my drawing and writing. I don’t let much of anything stand in the way of my dreams and I feel it’s important in life to do that for yourself. It’s okay to dream.
As I’ve grown up I’ve had a great appreciation for culture and learning about different cultures. When I have moved around I’ve explored as much as I can and tried to show my friends and family things that I enjoy and entice them to want to come and visit and learn why I have chosen to live where I live. I do this with my photography, I do it with my writing and also try to gift them things that I think they may enjoy.
I understand this more now than I have in the past. I knew that drawing and photography was something that I did that helped relax me but I didn’t realize just how much writing is something that has been very healing for me. This past year’s project to write every day has gone through many transitions that no one really noticed. Because part of the time I was just writing every day and I believe overthinking how I was doing it but as I went along I became more organized about it and started thinking ahead of what I wanted to do or who I wanted to include. I’m not saying that I haven’t had days that have challenged me or that I’ve gotten stuck. I have but I found especially after I came up with making a spreadsheet for everyone I’ve written about and also by slightly changing the web site so that I can search easily for someone I’ve written about in the past has made things easier for me. I also try to connect people that I reference. I stopped utilizing Instagram but I plan on going back and redoing Dexter’s Instagram later when I get more time. I highly recommend finding that thing that is going to help heal you, whether it be something you create or if it’s reading a book or doing a puzzle, whatever it is, make that time and take that time. Everyone needs healing.
