I don't know about you, but I've always been labled the "sensitive one" and with that came the honorary distinction of also being DIFFICULT. And I hate to say, but not much has changed. I have a hard time in this world, a hard time with the moniker of "capatalist" which I guess I deserve 'cause I've got things to sellllllll!!! But truly, like every other artist I know...I JUST WANNA MAKE THINGS!!!!
I just wanna make things. But I don't make things in a bubble, I live in a society. One that seems filled with turmoil and uncertainty at the moment. Or maybe it's always been that way. I feel like historians are always going on about how times before us were more bloody and violent...yadda yadda yadda....well I live in the here and now! And I am making a conscious effort to... how do you say...
LET LOVE RULE!!!!!
Oh man, do y'all remember Lenny Kravitz back in the day. OOOOOf...what a hottie! But I digress...I'm working on being a more open and VULNERABLE person. Man, it is hard. This crusty outer shell that has protected me for so many years, I think it’s fused to my skin! So it’s a daily process of chip-chip-chipping it away. Slowly but surely.
And that’s what the Bleeding Heart means to me. A deep desire to let all the goodness and love bubble out of me, for the world to see. A statement of "Here I am, in all my messy humanity...and that's A-OK, ok?"
Or something like that.
Make sure to check back in the fall, I’ll be making some more Bleeding Heart stuff for the cooler days!
