“We, all who live, have
A life that is lived
And another life that is thought,
And the only life we have
It’s the one that is divided
In right or wrong.”
― Fernando Pessoa
The closer life brings me to the exact place(s) of wisdom, it becomes clear that all my interests have run a bit amuck. What that means is that I’ve got blogs, accounts, and what-have-you, that are laying forlorn in the wires. Other the past few weeks I’ve been trying to find all those loose ends, weave them into a tapestry of where I am now, and give them a place to rest.
But it’s not been easy.
Sharing that much of myself, especially what is in my heart, is just part of what makes me who I am. However, as life moves along, I can see the benefits of just throwing all the ingredients of my life into one mixed media creative piece. It’s kind like something that I shared with Mr. The Mister – “Just because new ideas come into my head, there is no reason to make a new place for them to live.” There is also a part of me that has been conditioned to believe that artists have to pick a niche to stick with forever. That’s a great formula, and it works for so many people — just not for me.
What inspired today’s blog title, is the fact that I logged into the wrong site earlier this week. While I truly feel that there are no “accidents,” the timing was interesting, and it helped me see that maybe, just maybe, having too many outlets is not exactly a good way to share my work/life/etc. While I do love a good ramble, and enjoy being able to walk around in different places with ease, it is time to bring the “multitudes” home. Along with that, it is time to stop diversifying myself to please others.
As per usual, there are some more thoughts on all of this running around my system, but I’ve got some work to finish up today. Next time I post, it will be in the correct place — and I will be a little less “scattered.”
Sending love and hugs to all y’all,
