Starving artists starve because they don’t have time for a real job.
Can one be engaged full-time in the employment of simply existing–paying the bills, scooping the cat litter, spending countless hours on the treadmill– and still have the time/energy for creative and inventive thought? Is an empty belly (and bank account) necessary to germinate the seeds of inventiveness. Could a mostly-normal, middle class, suburban woman create anything worthwhile? In 2011, I created this blog as a response to these questions.
I’m not a professional writer or artist. All of the things produced for this blog are done in my free time (usually between the hours of 7 and 9 pm and on weekends–when not cleaning the house).
I hope you enjoy what you read and see here. I’m not challenging the boundaries of some transitory and electro-obsessive culture here, people. I’m just creating things are beautiful, occasionally terrifying, and hopefully good.
