“Mists of dreams drip along the nascent echo…”
Hybrid Utterance, Battlestar Galactica
How does one properly sign-off from a personal project that spans more than a decade? In my case, with great hesitancy and months of prolonged musing over how to best say the words that need to be said. And then — a quick jump over the edge, writing what comes to mind in this bright and clear moment, keystrokes fall, multiply, get discarded along the way.
It all comes down to this.
Creativity must not only come from the heart, it must also call out and draw us into its mighty grasp for our best works to find an audience. I know this because I was held there for quite a long while and will always be there to some degree. The difference is, the urgency I once felt for designing and publishing my artwork has waned somewhat over the past several months. This is not such a bad thing from my perspective. As an artist I’m very pleased with where this little adventure has taken me and the circle feels complete. To try and push it further along would be disingenuous.
Then again, total retirement may not be in the cards, a desktop or two could squirm out at some unknown point in the near/distant future. Weirder things have happened. What will be, will be.
My personal thanks to all who’ve encouraged me along the way, to those who’ve been inspired to find their own creative spark, and to those who’ve passed kind words my way. Cheers!
