Creativity drives me. Money influences me. I have to make; I have to eat.
Just like you, I’m looking for the balance, and it’s always shifting. It evolves, and I evolve.
There is no right answer. Truth is subjective, and temporary, and it’s always got to be sought. Always.
Truth is perspective; interpretation; AKA “story.” Let me say that clearly:
Truth is a story.
So I try. And fail. And keep trying. Practicing. And I know I’ll never “get there” and that takes some of the pressure off.
I am doing it right now; practicing. And I’ll do it again tomorrow.
When I say “I’m practicing,” what I’m really saying is that I’m making the story. I’m writing it, in the moment.
