During the European Renaissance of the 16th and 17th centuries, having many diverse skills and knowledge was considered a great benefit. Not so much these days. We are encouraged in every aspect of life to specialize. I don’t have one particular specialty. I know a lot about stuff that is very narrowly marketable. My whole life I have been trying to categorize myself without much success. Black and white both fit, I can be introverted and extroverted, I can care about the world and myself, I am spiritual but not religious, not a leader nor a follower. After much consideration I know this: I am an artist and an organizer. Maybe not in the traditional sense of art, but I come up with ideas and images and figure out how I want to execute them.
So I created this blog to share my ideas, and even possibly get support to make them into a reality. I’m not interested in money, but I do value many things. Sometimes you need cash to get by. I would like to be one of the people of the revolution to change that. Instead of spending our lives trapped 9-5 in offices, commuting, and then sleep; provide all of us with a feeling like we are earning our survival just by being ourselves and bringing our imaginations into the real world.
