This past week, I’ve been offered a job as a machinima film director, been asked to design an original logo and advertising campaign for a store, design landscaping for a virtual beach venue, and to serve on my local Literacy Coalition’s Board of Directors. All of which I declined.
I felt it was time to add a disclaimer on my ‘About” page that I’m no longer available to take on any outside work.
While it’s very flattering to have people seek me out for these things, this has really forced me to “get real” about my priorities here in the studio.
It also speaks to my maturity level as an artist – that I can finally be discerning about what brings me the most creative fulfillment and what does not. What I have discovered is that if I do not feel absolutely passionate about an idea – I need to pass on it.
Life is short and at my age, getting shorter all the time.
Sending you all my Love and Light. Stay Safe. Stay Sane. Stay Smart. Stay Strong out there.
Until next time … <cue the studio music>
