Art is made with connection.
Regardless of the subjective aesthetic value, in my opinion, the most impressive art engages smart connections. Connecting emotions with a film score in a way that makes the movie come alive, like you're in it... Connecting every day reality with humor makes the best comedy -- "it's funny, because it's true!"... Connecting history with the interpretation of dance and song in a theatrical performance can impact an audience so they are never the same.
My hope is to continue sharpening my ability to connect through this process of creating. I've loved connecting with others over the commonality of expressing ourselves through whatever medium we prefer in the moment. Art and relationships share the common thread of vulnerability, and authenticity never fails to reveal itself.
I never expected this project I accepted on a whim to affect my life so profoundly. I pour my energy into what I make and reflect on that. My thoughts are constantly searching for meaning in these things -- instead of dwelling on anxious, unproductive thoughts. It really has been transformative.
Thanks for sharing the journey!
