The last 6-8 weeks have been some of the most testing weeks of my life. In this recent solitude, I really wanted to hone in on what it is in life that I love. What in life makes me excited? Where does my mind go when it has nothing else to do? Where does it go when it does? What makes me happy?
I spent weeks writing lists on lists on lists of the things I like, why I like them, and if that's something I'd want to do. Unfortunately, the plan backfired. Instead of helping me decide on the one thing I want to do forever, all of the lists and ideas ignited a creative explosion inside of me.
I love technology and the possibilities it brings to the world. I love painting and physically creating a work of art, a work of expression, something that other people can see and react to. I love music. I am the master playlist curator because music has been a major part of my life since I was a child, and when I couldn't speak, music could. And I love my community and the people around me, because without them, who would I share my work with? Without them, who would inspire me? Without them, why does anything really matter?
I've never fully embraced the creative in me, but in the last couple of months (really since last year), I've felt this incredible pull towards the arts and artistic expression. When I make art, when I share it with the community, when I connect with other artists and help share their work, and when I let my inner child curiously explore the world I'm in, I am happy.
So now what? I art.
I redesigned this site to reflect me, in entirety. To quickly break down the new sections:
- photography: recent photos of mine I really enjoy
- music & tech: music ramblings, tech ramblings, and some actual things I put out
- art: my art outside of music, tech, & photos
- passions & projects: ideas, thoughts, and projects that I potentially want help with (so help me!)
I hope my art positively reaches and inspires others, and I hope you all enjoy it :)
p.s. I'm a fucking astronaut.
