MY PHILOSOPHY OF POETRY.. AND LIFE
I do not SEEK to better describe what I am seeing but to FIND the feeling in what I am seeing!
The goal is never greater Clarity.. The goal is always greater Connection!
The moment you feel it, it becomes living and real. Living is chasing moments not counting minutes. Death is not extinguishing existence, but existing without feeling!
Color is simply a magnet that is attracted to emotion. On a color wheel, love and hate are next door neighbors.. It's a short distance to either.
Skill is finding more feeling with less words. Brilliance is knowing when to quit.
Elaboration should only be done with a thin brush.
If beauty is feeling.. apply art first, not science or math. If you're still painting inside the lines your soul hasn't discovered it's true voice (boxed in by others)
Children lose their imagination because some fool over valued information.
People will see what they want to see unless you tell them everything.. So stay mysterious? Or you'll end up will only those who agree with you, finding your work Interesting.
Art is the feeling you create in the spaces between your words!
The goal is NOT a better scene.. It's a different play!
Don't write because your pen has ink.. Write because it has feeling!
Description grows dull with repeated reading.. Feeling is a flirt always appealing.
When I go to write I get excited by what I plan to neglect. Art is NOT fair!
Make your write so obvious only the ardent seeker will find what you're hiding
