Writing

I have been writing some stories of my life, some thoughts about current events, songs and poems. Those writings are here.

I know plenty of artists who are both visual artists and writers, or visual artists and musicians. Or poets and designers. The creative life is not usually contained in one medium. Some artists find it most efficient, lucrative and focused to stick with one outlet. That’s fine for them. I’m not one of them. I’ve always played music, sketched, painted, crafted, written songs, stories, blogs, teachings, explanations. Some things are more creative than others, that’s ok. I’m happy being me.
