Deep Thoughts


Sometimes there are just too many ideas and thoughts in my head. After a while, I don't know what I like anymore and what I've just seen so often that I'm confusing familiarity with inspiration.

I've been reading a bunch of young adult books from work. One thing about reading about 15 year olds is that I start to think like a 15 year old. It's bringing back all these memories and I'm realizing that I'm not much different now than I was then. I still don't know what I like.

I wonder what my style is with my art. Do I make word beads and folded books because they are truly me or because I get attention? (It's pathetic when you think about it) Do I do it for the money? I say I want to be an artist, but am I looking to create art or a "product"? Is it okay to do both? How come I don't feel right about either answer?

What would Jesus do, indeed... Can you imagine asking Him that question? I wunner what He'd say. Probably that I think too much.

  1. I have these same thoughts periodically. They seem cyclical and especially strong lately. I wish that I could just be content and stop thinking about what I want to be when I grow up. Or what I could sell...

    I love your book origami.

  2. Sometimes I think that thoughts like this persist in my mind when I'm supposed to do something about it. That's one reason I wrote it out this time. Maybe I'll figure out what to DO! (Or not, as the case may be)
