Simple


oliveemail, originally uploaded by Justin Davis Davanzo.

all of this talk and worry about where we are going, where we should be, what we want to do and don't want to do...makes me anxious...you ever get that feeling that you could land on the moon, but then you get freaked because you really could???

this i mean towards our success in art and life. sometimes that feeling of reaching out and creating or doing to great success scares us and stops us. I go through it every day..today...it is the feeling of all the things we "have" to do to get there...the idea that our journey will be arduous and long...ok fine...so what if it is?

I struggle with this on a daily basis as I strive to balance a "job" and to not lose site of my creativity in the world. What if??

What if we chose to drop all the "normal" things we need to do? I don't know if it would be any easier. I think the main thing to remember is to keep it simple....like a bowl of olives.

To me, olives are simple, yet each one completely different. but when I sit and eat olives i love every bite. So, today, I will try and eat olives in my creative life...i will enjoy all of my creativity and not worry about the size the shapes and the colors...they are all part of my world and every time I do any of them i am happy.


keeping it simple and creating little by little...

Love and Understanding.
