Technically I'm off of my second or third social media hiatus, but now that I'm back I'll be online less than I was before. The negativity has really gotten to me, this time around, and in the past few weeks I have had a complete 180 in mood and all things. As an artist, I need silence, that freedom to not say but to listen, and the ability to create without an audience watching or I seeing them.
I suppose this comes from my many years of being a performer, but you know? When I used to practice for hours on end, I didn't need/want an audience, and I don't need one now. All I need, is the room to practice, and thanks to a wondering, loving, and supportive group of friends and loved ones, I have that. Now, it's up to me to make them proud.
