Traveling gives way to inspiration, new things introduce new ways of thinking. Even the small getaways can open your eyes to something new, we all need to step down from the zone of comfort and see something outside of our day to day lives. As an artist, whether you are a painter, writer, photographer, or anything else you need new inspiration from time to time that requires you to go somewhere you have never been even if it’s as simple as exploring a new area in your city that you have never visited.
-Forever is really tomorrow-
Slowly learning that nostalgia isn’t such a bad thing, remembering the past and their precious moments is okay. On nights the mind may wander back to those moments for comfort. The past is a constant reminder of what progress, of change within the mind and the heart. The key is to use these memories as inspiration and teaching tools to be a better person today. Do not become locked in nostalgia but let it teach you.
These are just a couple of notes I’ve been jotting down for inspiration. Some time this year or at least the beginning of next year I plan to publish my first full length book of poetry dealing with the idea of the past and how much power it holds over the present. I am also working on a chapbook so this will all serve as inspiration.
While searching for purpose behind these shadows not knowing seems certain at times, but answers become more concrete the further we walk away from the….
Be inspired by the smallest things, peel off the surface layer to reveal the complexity of every thing we see, hear, touch, and feel. There is meaning to everything you just have to search for it.
Sometimes you can pull light from the darkness, sometimes the darkness allows us to pause and let the silence speak. We all need a little bit of silence to reevaluate everything around us.
-Your forever is really tomorrow-
It’s all about the process, our bodies will become tired, and our minds will become weighed down by the burdens of life. Despite this, know that perseverance gives way to progress.
Let us all be positive and productive.
