The Violent And Often

Create. Not because you want to or because the mood grabs you or just because you happen to feel like it. Create because you need to. Because it feels like if you don't, you might die.

Funny how you so often word feelings with such a great accuracy. I can't help but be astounded at how wonderful this is.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'll go create a little. Because if I don't, I feel my heart, head, or other vitally important body part, might explode.

In all of my years, I have only met a couple of people who have a gift for articulating what the rest of us have in our hearts, but cannot reach with words.

I love your writing and the pictures.

When I create, it's because my soul feels like it will explode to pieces if I don't get it out of me.

That doesn't happen too often these days.

I love how the entry previous to this one gave me a small window overseeing into exactly what I wanted to say, exactly how to say it, and I blogged about it. A very long entry, I might add.
And then I come to this entry, right after finishing my blog entry, and it's exactly what I feel like I've just done. It's what is going on with me right now.
But how does one create when you don't know how to create what you need? I feel this idea, scratching on the inside of my head, but I can't capture it, whatever I do. And it's absolutely killing me. I don't know how to grab that idea, whilst holding up everything in my life that's going on now. If I drop one, every things else falls. And I can't let any of it go, so anything in the least bit unnecessary takes the fall.
Have you ever heard the expression "feel like you're holding the weight of the world on your shoulders"? This expression couldn't be any more accurate in my current case. And I honestly don't think I'm exaggerating, which many people would assume in my case.
