Being The Dreamer You know as well as I That we can’t make time standstill But I, Being the dreamer, Have to try You know as well as I That we can't touch the stars But I, Being the dreamer, Have to try I know as well as you That not all dreams come true But I, Being the dreamer, Dream on -E.M.

This is my second attempt at a blog. My first attempt died due to laziness so you may wonder why I’ve decided to make another attempt. Well… I am plagued by the idea that as an artist if no one has the opportunity to see/hear/or read what I create that somehow I’ve lost.
The funny part is I don’t need to know that any of this is being seen. I just need to know that it could be seen. In my mind the important thing is giving people the opportunity to see my work. If no one ever reads this at least I still put it here, right?
I could write this out and stick it in some notebook never to be seen by anyone, but that would be pointless to me. For some reason just knowing that this could be read by even one person makes it worth while. Don’t mistake my meaning, there are things that need to be written and then stuffed in a notebook never to be seen by anyone except the author. But there are other things that should be shared. That must be shared. Not because they are perfect or profound. Not because they’re “good enough”. I think some things must be shared for no other reason than that they were created to be shared. You wouldn’t tell a child not to show you their drawing just because it’s nothing but scribbles. Whether someone is good at something or not shouldn’t dictate whether or not they try.
Well, I’m not sure exactly what this blog will end up being, hence this not-very-informative “About” page. I just needed to write. So here I am… writing.
