“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”
–George Bernard Shaw
And so I create myself.. and I feel most days like the Esher drawing of a hand coming out of the drawing to draw a hand coming out of the drawing to draw it. I create the person who will create my tomorrow who in many ways creates me. For as we grow, we look on and know our past with more insight. Who will this creation become? Will people like it? It doesn’t really matter, it won’t be for sale.
I choose what goes into the mix. The books, websites, art that I look at and music I listen to will all influence the shape of the me that I create. Will I feed it from controlled media sources that want to take away our power to think for ourselves or will I choose ideas that open up and flower. Will I eat healthy so that the me I create will have energy or will I run it down. So many choices and in each one some creativity comes in. I want to look on the me I create as a masterpiece as hopefully it will look on me.
