I have been desperately needing this as of late, so I'm willing to bet others are too.
ARTIST PEP TALK TIME
It's hard when the news is just a constant barrage of shit to actually get to work and try to put beauty and joy and silliness and happiness and wonder and curiosity out into the world. It's hard to feel like it's important enough to do right now. IT IS IMPORTANT TO DO RIGHT NOW. It might be even MORE important to do right now. So keep writing, keep playing, keep making music and dances and theatre and art and...WE NEED ART, AND WE WILL NEVER STOP NEEDING ART. Create something lovely or ugly or weird or fascinating or funny or pretty and send it out into the world today.
