The following I found in my computer attic – I don’t know the author. It sets a certain mood, illogical, impossible, and warm.
How to be an artist
stay loose. learn to watch snails. plant impossible gardens. invite someone dangeours to tea. make little signs that say yes! and post them all over your house. make friends with freedom & uncertainty. look forewards to dreams. cry during movies. swing as high as you can on a swingset, by moonlight. cultivate moods. refuse to “be responsible”. do it for love. take lots of naps. give money away. do it now. the money will follow. believe in magic. laugh a lot. celebrate every gorgeous moment. take moonbaths. have wild imagining, transformative dreams, and perfect calm. draw on the walls. read every day. imagine yourself magic. gigle with children. listen to old people. open up. dive in. be free. bless yourself. drive away fear. play with everything. entertain your inner child. you are innocent. build a fort with blankets. get wet. hug trees. write love letters.
