Gratitude List for the Artist

As 2020 comes to an end I am reflecting as an artist all that I have learned. I cannot throw the baby out with the bath water by complain about what went wrong this year. I think a lot of stuff still went right because of the situation 2020 put me in.

As an artist, we have a job to give perspective to others. If we mope and bitch all day, we are only letting the world win. Taking time to make a conscience effort to the the existential view of the world is our duty.

I hope everyone is safe an has the ability to gain a new perspective on life as we end 2020.
