An artist trying to find his way through the darkness *

“Most of us don’t want to change


I mean why should we

What we do want is sort of modifications on the original model

We keep on being ourselves

But hopefully better versions of ourselves

But what happens when an event occurs that is so catastrophic

That you just change

Change from the known person to the unknown person

So that when you look at yourself in the mirror you recognize the person that you were

But the person inside the skin is a different person”

    • Yes, so is catastrophe the necessary precursor to a radical change in one’s life?
      It would seem to be an important factor but not the only one…
      Cave’s catastrophe was the death of his teenage son. Artists, poets, musicians, writers I think have the ability to look into this mirror and express what most of us cannot articulate.
