A friend just posted on facebook that she had a dream where her studio was split between several media that she couldn’t decide between. “
The lesson I would take from your dream about indecision is not that you need to know what to make but that you can’t let not knowing hold you back. Having ideas is not the only staring point, and its not even the most important. Get to work, on really anything, and the ideas will start to flow. That’s my dream interpretation at least! Good luck!
As with the idea behind my previous post, knowing is not always the answer. Certainty is not actually a goal that is worthy of an artist. Rather, it is the exploring, the discovery that counts. And for this, having an idea of what lies ahead is only minimally important. Planning will only get us so far. Its as if before we step into the water we need to have an exact calibration of the temperature, whether there are man eating sharks and other hazards about, a chart of the wave patterns, and a program for which waves will be ducked under and which will be ridden in to the shore. Who actually does that?
With something as important as creativity is it actually necessary to wait for permission? The permission that its alright to start only once we know what we are doing? Creativity does not need permission. Creativity only waits for those not brave enough to plunge right in. Be brave! Be your own permission!
Make beauty real!
