This Working Thing viii

Creativity manifests in the exercise of passions
The communication of thoughts and ideas
And through exertion.

I am what I do
And to some that might sound all too pitiful.
But art is truly my heart.
Every rhythm, each beat, all the pieces and parts.
Beyond devotion, vocation, obsession…

My very existence!

So in all honesty I never quite understood ‘this working thing
Because as far as I’m concerned there’s never really been any other option.
And without this activity I may as well be in a coffin.

So here’s to living and never hoping.

To embodying the calling!

    Thanks Jamie. Very kind of you. Much appreciated.


  3. Creativity fed by pain is an inspiration born of where those without will thankfully not understand
    To die each stroke of the pen or glance on canvas of the brush is to see death in a thousand lines

  4. Ps: Masterful as ever, words as truthful as the air we creatives use to fuel our inspirational breath

    Thanks, Heath. It’s cold today but the trees keep leafing out. What is Autumn doing in your part of the world?

    Pardon my late reply, hope you’ve had sunnier days since. Autumn has been mild, sunny days – cooler nights. The trees are hanging on to the colours of cheer still ☺
