I am Art
I have paid dearly for depth, for being able to show compassion and understand that my value as a person is on an equal basis as the starving child in Africa or the starved little rich kid on Capitol Hill.
The greatest chance we take as artists is not a new color or a new shocking shape but the chance of change within. The greatest chance we can take as artists is to take down our internal borders and to realize that fame or fortunes have nothing to do with our personal value. Our personal value comes from internal emotions that are selfless, transparent experience that enriches not only ourselves but the things we create. The greatest art is not art itself but how we inspire others. It is easy to play with the human emotion, we have all the formulas to sensationalize and manipulate their feelings. But does it inspire them to go out and do something like take the leap of faith and follow their vision and dreams. Perhaps one of the greatest abilities of the human is the fact we dream and we follow our dreams. We have visions and we follow them. Sometimes we lack the understanding of why we want to follow those dreams and visions and get stuck within a principle. I could perhaps have this dream of getting the Nobel Prize. But something within actually knows that it wouldn't mean anything really. Not if my work wouldn't have the ability to reach out to people and inspire them to throw away their inhabitation's and just do it. And I could never get the Nobel Prize because my art is not for a chosen few that have taken a university degree in understanding art and symbolism. My writing is not for scholars and critics.
All I do is for everyone, especially those that don't think they care for art and culture. I don't make what I make for me but for you and me. By making something that someone will eventually experience I will become part of that person and that person will become a part of me. That is my reward for taking the leap for being me by all possible means. I have been doing a lot of thinking in the last few weeks my life has turned around again full circle all of a sudden everything that was is no more and I have to start at a new beginning I am broke, I took the leap of faith all the way to the other end of the world again and I am forced to go back to my little island of extremes and I had sold everything I owned and the money has blown into the wind and vanished. But the price of experience can never be set So I am taking another leap of faith In the process I have changed again and I need to eat my hat more then twice but that is ok We as humans are entitled to fall So we may rise again and again.
once said that 1 Birgitta year is like 7 years for others and it is
intense but I feel blessed to have acquired so much experience, so
many failures and so many tragedies not that I want any more but if
there are more I see myself as clay and it will mold me again into
something new and thus I will have more to give because I have been
so many things. Life
is beautiful and always exactly as beautiful as we make it to be.
We don't need more things. We need to give more because that is the
only thing that really fills that empty feeling inside. So if you
ever feel miserable go and help someone that is more miserable. If
you ever feel hungry go feed someone that is starving.
