Finally I figured out how to do this.
It's like someone snatched off my spotty glasses, gave them a good wipe-down, and stuck them back on my face.
Wala! "I can see clearly now the rain is gone...."
And by "this", I'm referring to the upcoming "Secretly Crazy" film project and some other projects that will be coming up after that.
Everything is as bright and clear as can be....and what that clarity reveals are things both terrific and heart-breaking.....
Are you willing to be a realist? Can you handle that? Or do you need a bit of delusion and cuddling in order to help the medicine go down?
For better or for worse, I want to see things for what they are and what they, truthfully, can be. Because my tolerance for nonsense is at an absolute 0 right now.
2013 has been an interesting year.....
I can't think of any other year where I've struggled with so much indecision and project-panic like I have this year. That's not my personality at all. If there's anyone who avoids indecision and murky stances, it's me. 2013 has been surprisingly out-of-character. I have to confess that I'm a bit disgusted with myself for falling into that.
Who am I? Why am I doing these projects?
Yuck. Truthfully, I can't stand that type of navel-gazing, time-sucking bullshit but, for whatever reason(s), those kinds of questions kept popping up over and over this year.
Shuffling through differences in how to approach things (creatively and financially), how to aim things, various approaches to how/why/which way when it comes to what I do.
I know that I have to change my approaches in certain ways and I'm very aware of how I've fucked up in the past (especially when it comes to defining and publicizing projects).
Now, thankfully, the arrows are sharply revealing themselves and sometimes they lead you on paths that are rough but take you to very specific destinations. If you're willing to be realistic, then you're good to go. I'm choosing to be realistic, work within those limits, and I'm completely okay with that. More so than I would have originally thought.
