Old news that still makes me happy. Blue lobster caught by Nova Scotia fisherman.
So about a week and a half ago (maybe slightly longer) I told someone that they needed to promote themselves more and not be so reticent about what they do. To which the old adage of ‘do what i say, not what i do’ could, perhaps, be found to apply. But what do i want to promote about myself? The person i referred to earlier is a comedian and therefore needs an audience. But now i’m no longer a full time artist (apply term loosely) do i need an audience? Now i have left the harsh coal front of the creative industries, do i need to showcase myself? I guess the reason i find myself typing today is because in some small, not too loud way, i’ve got things i’d like to put out there. But small splashes, not big ones. I’m not even sure that this will be about art, maybe just the art of living (and not going totally crazy out there in the big bad world). Or even more specifically and diminishingly my art of being me.
