I have just been reading the March 11 entry of Keri Smith's blog. (Somehow I can't link to the actual post, but it is called: "in which she unleashes it all, thoughts on creation, life, ads, things not making sense, grumpy feels and a whole mess of stuff" . It is food for thought ...)
"Why should this exist?"
This question has added another dimension to my reflections on my own creative journey. Is "wanting to" or "expression of myself" a good enough reason for bringing something new into the world? Should there even be a reason? What gives value to the thing? Is the making of it enough? Does it need to be seen by someone else to have value? Does it need to have a monetary value put on it, i.e. be for sale, to be taken seriously? Why am I using the term "be taken seriously"? That implies that I need others to approve or value what I do. Is this important to me? And if so, why?
I really do not have any answers at the moment ...
