Let your creative nature shine through
In conversation with an old friend of mine I have got to know that she is also on hiatus for the last one year, as she was expecting a child and now she has become a mother of a two months old baby girl. She has shown keen interest in residency for artists on hiatus which I think would be an ideal residency for her because she is unable to make any sort of art work for quite a long time. I have shared my residency proposal with her and encouraged her to apply for this unique residency. As this is one of its own kind. I think this platform is the best to fight against the depression of not making art. While being on this residency you feel glad. Though you don’t make art but you are not even scared of being out of touch with the art world. You keep on reading the posts of other residents and in the same time you keep posting your point of views as well so it makes a very nice connection with the other artists who are going through the same situation.
Also in addition to this my work place also never let me forget that I am an artist. My boss keeps on assigning me such tasks which involve some sort of art. Probably that’s the reason I am feeling quite confused by the many different options in front of me. Perhaps it feels as if I am walking up a mountain with a large pack. I have arrived at one ridge where the view is beautiful, yet i know that if i hike up farther, the view will be even more spectacular. The problem is that i may feel completely comfortable just staying at the place I am at right now.
Things may get a bit confusing right now I have been enjoying my hiatus so much and I am scared of being a part of this art world again. I feel like i need to make sense of it all. In fact, that may be impossible. I think whatever you do, make sure you’re being yourself.
I will let my creative nature shine through. As my Daily Horoscope says;
“If you’ve been pursuing a career in the creative arts, Ramla+fatima, today you just might get the break you’ve been hoping for. All signs are great for any kind of business matters, particularly those involving art, literature, music, drama, and so on. Modern technology, such as computers, computer graphics, recording, film or video could be involved in some way. Don’t hesitate or let fear hold you back. Days like this don’t come all that often.”
