What if I told you I have a dream relating to art? What if I have pieces that i am ready to use and see a dream actually come true? What if the blog, etsy, and patreon are all part of this bigger plan/dream? A lot of “what if’s.” I feel like that has been my entire life “what if,” and I finally feel like i am moving forward in one way or another. It is an unreal feeling because I am living truth, im seeing things that i dreamed about when i was 8 come true and i am living MY BEST LIFE not for anyone else but for me.
I do have a dream that relates to art. Art is one of those things that is all around us and it is expression that any human can express. If you are disabled, black, white, brown, deff, blind, or any other thing that society defines us as you can do art. It’s incredible. It is presented to us in such a raw and unique way that not a lot of other things are presented. It is fluid just like how there is no gender there is no right way to art. It is expression in its rawest form.
My dream consists of an art gallery on the main level and a studio apartment upstairs. With an elevator and accessible because that is more important than any piece of art. I want to see any form of art presented and I want a revolving door of all different people and art pieces. I want to have art shows twice a month and I want anyone who is into art to come. I want to make this like REFLECT only bigger. Also would be a bit more accessible than the last REFLECT.
I also have a dream to be a full time writer/ blogger and I feel like this blog has brought things out of me I never thought I would get to share. I want to use these blog posts for a book someday and have a full on explanation of my life. I have had a life for sure and to be honest I don’t know how I have made it this far… I thought i would of been dead last year by this time. But, Im still here and I am kicking ass and i am actually living for the first time ever in 29 years.
This year has been fast. But, the stuff that has happened this year i wouldn’t change for anything. I have the most amazing partner and I work for the most amazing woman I know and I live with a group of folks that i have never experienced before. Genuine. Ups and downs but no lies, no deceit, no false blaming just genuine truth. I did not experience that growing up evangelical and living in ywam. I was taught to hide in ywam and church. Such a huge contradiction.
