I WANT TO LIVE SIMPLY. I WANT TO SIT BY THE WINDOW WHEN IT RAINS AND READ BOOKS I’LL NEVER BE TESTED ON. I WANT TO PAINT BECAUSE I WANT TO, NOT BECAUSE I’VE GOT SOMETHING TO PROVE. I WANT TO LISTEN TO MY BODY, FALL ASLEEP WHEN THE MOON IS HIGH AND WAKE UP SLOWLY, WITH NO PLACE TO RUSH OFF TO. I WANT TO NOT BE GOVERNED BY MONEY OR CLOCKS OR ANY OF THE ARTIFICIAL RESTRAINTS THAT HUMANITY IMPOSES ON ITSELF. I JUST WANT TO BE BOUNDLESS AND INFINITE.
I read this on my friend’s fb page and realized – hey this is me! This is exactly what i am doing. I am living the dream now and i can’t believe that this could happen this soon 🙂
One time a friend asked me how it feels to be unemployed, i answered “i am not unemployed, i am a full-time artist.” 😉
It’s a monday morning and everybody i know is rushing off to work or to school, and stuck in very bad traffic. And here i am, sipping my coffee and eating my breakfast, thinking whether i should paint or fix my next follow-your-art journey.
And so I stay cooped up in my atelier painting, cook myself a meal when i get hungry, take a nap when i get tired, watch a good film in my bed with surround sound, read a book till i get sleepy, and hopefully by the end of the day, not shell out any money.
Maintenant, c’est ma vie. C’est la vie.
