[Pardon this short interjection into the middle of the London travel logs.]
I’ve been realizing over the past couple of months that my core nature is that of a creator. I love creating things. I live for being able to create and participating in the creation of things. Whether that thing is a ballet, a piece of writing, or the full development of an idea doesn’t matter. What I love is being able to create and participate in the creation process. I love being able to build up to something greater than the sum of its parts.
Having realized this, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about the future and what I see myself doing in the future. I’m not going to tell you what I’ve decided since I haven’t figured anything out. Pretty much the only thing I have figured out is that regardless of whatever I’m doing, I’m going to have to figure out some way of incorporating creativity and the creating of something in my daily life. Creating is what fills my soul with joy and what satisfies me in a way that nothing else can.
I have at least two or three actual projects I am currently working on. Don’t hold your breath; I have no idea how long it will take me to finish these projects. But I have hopes. And I’m going to keep trying. I have so much to learn and do and make and figure out. But that’s exactly where the fun begins.
