Looking through my RSS reader feeds today, I realised that I’m beginning to gravitate back to keeping up with writing, photography, art, design, and lettering/fonts more than anything computer, tech, code etc.
This is an interesting shift.
Art has always been the true love- the thing I feel most confident about and can always fall back on when my mind will do nothing else. I remember being very young and believing that the New York loft artist life was the one for me (until I understood more about that culture). My ideal creative life vision has changed from those days, but I feel like I’ve tapped into something recently and it’s good. I want the creative life, and for the first time in my life, I feel I can have it.
I’m still a geek to some degree, but I rarely tweak any code at all these days and haven’t kept up to date with product or software releases. Hell, I have no idea what was covered at MacWorld and that’s really strange for me!
I think I’ve completed a chapter of sorts. I still love computers and code and all things geeky, but I find that art and design are resurfacing as far more important. To write and draw, paint and create is my ultimate dream and I think that’s where my life is heading. Tech stuff is falling back to a position of support for these endeavours, and not much more. I don’t even feel guilty about it.
