Most people are content to poke tiny holes in their creative veins, feeding one drop at a time to various aspects of their lives, using it with caution and always wary of it's volatile nature. But mixed in among this crowd are others, others who feel helplessly compelled to cut that vein wide open and let their hearts bleed freely until those creative waters wash over everything that they do.
Because it's a blessing, growing up in the sense of being on a higher level mentally than most of yur peers, being very open minded and understanding things sooner than most. And it's also a curse, in the sense of constantly feeling alone cause you can't find nobody who understands you, constantly fighting the madness of this world, constantly feeling restless and crazy.
I like people who understand. The type of people who aren't quick to judge. You can vent to them, and labeling you will be the very last thing on their mind. They don't believe rumors because they know there are two sides of every story. They give you a chance before they judge you. They get to know who you really are, then have an opinion. I really like this type of people. Beautiful people.
It's people like that you should be surrounded with. Creative people, real people. People who have passion for something. Who can tell you something old, but still got that special look in their eyes that makes you think that it happened yesterday. People who has a story to tell.
But being with a creaitive person can also be hard, and there are several things you should know. One of those being, knowing everything that falls under the title of "artist". Most people believe that artists are simply painters such as Picasso and Van Gogh, but even artists such as Da Vinci were not limited to painting, he was also a scientist.
What I'm trying to say is that not everyone is limited to painting and sketching. Not everyone can sketch. Some even pride themselves that they can't. Yes, these are the foundations, the basics, but there is so much more. To be an artist is to be a creator. Some artists might create magnificent sculptures, where some of them create beautifully intricate cathedrals and that is honestly taken for granted. They are the animators in your favorite childhood movies. They are the characters on stage that bring stories to life. They are the young boys and girls dancing in the streets of performing in their worn down pointe shoes. They are the designers of your theme park roller coasters.They are the dreamers of your wildest imaginations and deliver it to you on paper.
Another thing taken for granted is that not all artists create wonderful works that are visual. Some artists create works that you hear. These works are the ones that beat and drum through peoples souls. This art, is music. Music is one of the oldest forms of art. It has been the french horn in a symphony hall, the bass in a jazz club, it has been the drums of war and the rhythm of our ancestors. Music is love, it is passion, is the air that we breathe whether you believe it or not. Another thing to know, when you've fallen in love with an artist is that you have to be understanding. I can not stress this enough. Everyone has bad days, but some people take them a little harder than others.
I love the realness in people, and most of the time, creative people are the most rare and true humans on this earth, because they feel everything so very deeply. I like people who feel like the hell has broken loose, everytime they've lost the inspiration. Cause you know what? I have been there too. I may have thrown tantrums, been starting screaming or even dramatically thrown myself onto the couch like Vivien Liegh. And yes, sometimes I can be a little bit dramatic and even a bit fiesty. But I am not alone with that, I know many people who actually can tell me the same story, and these people are the most loyal, honest and entertaining humans that I ever could surround myself with. So if your are fortunate enough to have a creative person, or an artist in your life, take care of them, treasure them. They are very hard working and wonderful people, I really mean that. They will never take you for granted. But love loud, full, deeply and proudly. Don't forget that.
