With each passing year I can observe my art getting consistently and exponentially worse in my eyes 👀 I hope if I live to see 50 my art can once again be as pure and majestic as it once was when I was 5 🖍
I do not know how to play guitar yet this picture exists.
I am a horrible dancer
and have not one Bollywood song on any of my musical devices yet I am in this room trying to move my body to this beat.
I don’t know how to draw babies yet this painting exists somewhere.
I loathe the genre of reggae music and yet I wrote a reggae song.
I am horrified of public speaking yet I did over 2 hours of standup with no jokes.
I used to think watercolors were lame and for soft old people and now it’s the only kind of painting I really do.
I’m not a fan of the country of Canada and yet There is always a faint yet unmistakable whiff of poutine on my breath..
I often find myself disliking most people and all of humanity yet Through compassion, gratitude and repeatedly hitchhiking across the world I force myself to try and reconnect with as many people different than me and find the parts I most hate about you and find love and understanding there.
If we are not constantly learning , thinking different , taking ourselves out of our comfort zones to unfamiliar areas,
Then congratulations you’ve already become your parents and everything you hate about other people.
It is an honor and pleasure to constantly fail fantastically forward
