Oh Creative One, check out The Guardian’s interview with Kellis last week. There are a number of parts I was thankful that she said. The most interesting, as far as our musings go, is this: “… an artist is allowed on occasion, to suck. And I put myself in that category because I sometimes suck…I’m not trying to please the masses.”

Terribly Lovely Creative One! Here is a reminder that you might make some very horrible stuff. You might, on occasion, make something so awful that you wish the ground would swallow you whole and spit you out as an entirely different, gasp, even non-creative, person. You could make something that bad. I have. But, that’s part of it isn’t it? Wonderful beauty in your humanity. Make your mistakes. Go on, as long as you are bringing as much of your self as you can to the table, make your mistakes. Don’t try to please the masses. Just make your art. I’ll be glad you’re around regardless of the outcome and happy to help you move on if it sucks.
