anyway... here's my most recent page.
i had to block out the picture for legal reasons, but it's the image of a woman in blue with wings, facing away from us. the words i wrote about her are:
"She wants to be seen. She wants to fly. But she's afraid."
then off to the left i wrote:
"i think everyone wants to be seen, but artists more so. and yet exposing ourselves through our art is like exposing a piece of our soul. it takes courage to create and let it be what it is. it takes more courage to show it to someone and not worry about what they'll think."
(i think this is even more true for those of you who are writing to get published.)
scattered around the page, i wrote:
"we have to fight to be real."
"inside, we're all afraid."
"be who you were meant to be."
"i dare you to fly. i dare you to use your wings."
so, how will you be real in your art or writing today? how will you fly?
