It’s necessary in my opinion to be mindful how one spends one’s time. Many factors go into the creative process. Creative people may be sensitive people. Therefore creative people may be wise to realize the effect all things can have on their creative process. There are a number of things I would erase if I could – from my experience of life – and the effect upon me as an artist. I’ve been through too much heartache for one thing and I’ve opened my inner sanctum ( trust ) to factors that proved to actually be toxic. But I cannot change what is now done. I can change how I process what is now done. And I can learn from those experiences to have a different now.
