Writing About my Work
I've never really been good at writing about my work. Oftentimes the words seem to get caught and obstruct any semblance of crystal clear understanding. I find that I find ways to tiptoe around explicitly stating my larger justifications; perhaps because I'm irrational, acting on instinct, or perhaps out of some maternal protection over the life my work might live beyond my own.
Likewise I have a tendency to distrust, or dismiss, things that are too clear. I much prefer overgrown paths to open highway. The idea of knowing damn well why I'm working and what I'm heading towards is personally pretty terrifying. Perhaps this makes me aimless, wandering around with clouded eyes, but I think that claiming otherwise, in any artist's case, would be self deceiving. I believe those that know exactly what they're doing should get lost.
