This is the year that people will be able to describe me as an artist. I am determined. They may not describe me as a very good one, or they might depending on how awesome I become. But I have been actively preventing my own creativity out of guilt, stress and generally bad mental health.

Other people inspire me, either I can accept that and take what they have to offer or I can guilt because I don’t process information in the neurotypical/socially acceptable way and might offend them or cause them pain or problems.

The point is that I stopped believeing other people were capable of consent at some point because my own mental capacity had been completely different to what I understood it to be.

I’ve signed up to produce a photograph a week and I’m attempting the Pagan Blog Project again this year. I’ve even done prep for both for this week. If my creativity offends people it’s not a sign that my brain is doing things wrong, it just means I’m making something that’s on the right path.

This year will be the year of art.

  1. Glad to hear, especially about the Pagan Blog Project, it was really interesting to read and hear your views on it 🙂

  2. Have done for the last few years, I’m sadly just a tad quiet normally when it comes to commenting on blogs and such. However I thought it was worth chipping in to say that both I’m glad to see you carry on the Pagan Blog Project because as already said I found/find it very interesting. But also that it’s good to hear your continued enthusiasm towards art, I can only comment on what I’ve seen but you’re talented (especially the Mural on your stairs).

    Keep up the good work.
