Have you ever looked up at the sky and started a prayer to “GOD” or Buddha or Allah or the Universe or whatever you call it, and ask questions? Have you ever wondered why God made you an artist, gave you all the tools and intellect to do it well, but didn’t supply the needed support to keep you going in a “real world” manner? In other words, have you ever looked up and asked “Why did you make me an artist if nobody cares about the stuff I make?”
Oh, oh, oh……This leads to an entirely new conversation. “Well God, maybe I make crappy art. This is why nobody buys it. Is that right? If so, why did you make me a shitty artist and what should I do to change? What kind of art should I make so it will sell?”
Hmmmmmm, hoooooo, wwwaiting…..do I hear an answer????? Be quiet…shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh….I know it is coming…..Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm……………..I don’t hear anything. Weird.
“Well, Ok. So God. You know my house is filled with too much stuff. I have made art. I have done the work. I always believed you have been right there with me. I thought I was doing quite well. I thought I was doing what I was supposed to be doing.”
OK, I will listen now again.
“I realize you are very busy God. I know I am far down on the priority list as it should be. However, I just wanted to leave a message. Should I wait for the beep?....ahhhhh, Well…… I really don’t see the point. Why should I make more ART if I have all this ART taking up all the space of my house? Really. I am serious. I am trying to be logical. Why should I keep creating all this stuff that nobody wants? God? Why? ”
Yeah, I am speechless too.
If you feel this way sometimes, just click the pic.
You can join me in my prayer circle. LOL LOL LOL! (In other words, I am not trying to be a downer. I am just posing realistic questions. :-)
