More Mythical Creatures

February 25, 2010

Oh Creative One! I am an American Idol fan. I’m not a “reality tv” fan, but I am an American Idol/ X factor fan. The theme this week was “defining moment.” Like “starving artists,” I also find “defining moments” unrealistic. If you listen to these guys, there is so very much practice that goes into defining moments. And, what’s more, these “moments” often do not fully define the artist. No heavens open. Money does not rain down on them. It’s a bit like mistaking a wedding for a marriage.

Patient Creative One, keep at it. Don’t let society’s belief in fleeting and ill-defined “defining moments” rule your creative life. You are here for a reason. You must practice. You must wake every day and choose to respect the artist that you are.
