C is for...

I am a big one for commitment, well now that I am old and in my thirties I am. In my early twenties, the 'c' word was not high on my agenda., ahem, but let's not talk about that.

Now I am old and wise and can see the benefit of commitment. The joy and strength that comes with staying. 

I am now making a new commitment, one entirely to myself - to follow my own fancies, to make stuff, to make stuff with other people who are super-fantastic friends and makers.  I was going to say its a commitment to 'craft' but I am not sure that is true. It is all about following my own creative whims and fancies  to see where they lead me. 

It's exciting. 

A friend of mine asked me via Skype the other day (how contemporary!) - "Art is amazing isn't it? Why do we even bother with the other crap?"

"An excellent question", I thought.
