I’m working to create a style that is my own.

“We are not enemies because you have money and I do not. We are enemies because I own what you never could and cannot buy while you have the tools for what I know how to do but you cannot use them – they are no more than a novelty to you. That is why we are enemies. And, neither of us can win as enemies.

Even when it seems you have won, you have nothing for having done it and were I to win at your complete loss, neither would I have won anything worth having. And, I would have lost you as well when you are certainly far more valuable than money could ever be.” (said by me – cricketdiane).

The fact is, I create because I can. And, I create because I believe it is important and a massively important part of living skills. (or life skills) – The ability to think through, to learn, to discover, to explore, to grow, to apply those things into real life situations on the fly and to create solutions including by creating things – is an important and critical survival set of skills in everyday life – especially today.

And, to share that with others through those things that can be created with those skills – both to inspire and to add to the knowledge base assets of the whole community – is worthwhile. The more it is done, the more that our complete world with everyone included can aspire, grow, change, develop, prosper, be safer, be happier, be more at peace with living, and be more a part of one another’s resources to do even more. It is a good thing, not a broken thing to be fixed or cured. It is a good and resourceful and life thriving set of skills – not a bad thing at all. And it is what drives me to create and to offer the fruits of some of those creations into the public community at large.

There seems to be no sense in trying to create a ten words or less elevator pitch anymore – I had a great one and nobody liked it. I thought it was perfect – took me years to come up with it – literally. And, yet, nobody that has heard it thought it describes who I am or what I do with any meat to it. That means I don’t know what – but here is the one I thought was so great –

I just create feel happy stuff.

It is so perfect and it is true. Plus it is actually the truth of it – as far as what I’m putting on my Zazzle store and many of the artworks that form the basis of those products which I’ve been creating for years before putting them on coffee mugs. That does describe it, but apparently that sentence doesn’t have enough meat in it to suit an elevator pitch or quick description for someone who wants to know what I do and who I am. Well, damn. Maybe I should just say – I’m working to be a genius and apply that in every way I can to everything I can while I’m still alive to do it. That probably describes it better and more accurately presents who I am and what I’m trying to do all the time. And, it is actually the truth.

Building a new style and sets of styles for the twenty-first century is a clumsy way to create for the marketplace and I know that. But it is worthwhile and the things its creates as it strides through the creative / inventive process are stunning and wonderful and fun and inverse and reverse and sometimes obtuse – but well worthwhile.
