better than a vlog

28 Feb

I want to put up a new vlog. Really, I do.

But I can’t.

This is not bad news, so much as it is good news. Instead of listening to me talk about plot holes for five minutes while you pretend to drink coffee (that vlog is coming), you get to watch the amazing Jackson Pearce star in her very own music video.

Writers, enjoy 🙂

on passion

24 Feb

Have you ever seen someone try to create art without passion? I have.

Dance, music, fine arts, story telling, just to name a few. I’ve seen all these things delivered completely void of ardor. It’s a strange thing for a person to witness. The whole process resembles… someone trying to jump without moving their legs; Or maybe a person trying to catch themselves in a fall without putting out their hands.

They’re trying, but something important is missing. And it shows.

Art requires a certain measure of passion. Without it, it looks awkward to it’s audience. Something stands out as being not quite right. The movements may all be there, but where is the heart and authenticity that makes the creation appealing?

Passion is the breath of our creations. It’s what gives them life.

I had an epiphany the other day as I thought through some of this: Everyday life is the greatest art form of all.

I hope you can see where I’m going with this…
