Reassuring The Un-Reassuring
I am a person with some confidence in what I do, but if someone bumps into me on the street and asked me something face to face I can so easily just fold. I’m not strong in people to people situations. But I am aware that even an artist needs this, in this day and age to ever succeed.
I somehow don’t feel like I really don’t (or won’t) fit into the art world, just like when I write songs i don’t really feel part of the local music scene. Sometimes I think this could be my making, but more often I fear this could be my un-doing. My art (and songs) are as contemporary and analytical of the world as any other art out there. I just cannot justify making art that the vast majority of people probably wont understand.
I certainly have ideas on these grounds, but I don’t really have the patience to construct something which is neither pleasing to me or others.
