What is Easy

It's easy to allow the atrocities which seem massive and insurmountable to make you feel powerless, but if everyone clamped their eyes shut in panic and fear, it would allow that which we wish to wither to bloom instead.

It's like that container in the back of your fridge that you let sit for too long and is now completely unrecognizable as the thing it started as.

There is a quote that people cut and paste on their various social media accounts:

"Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate.

Our greatest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure..."

-Marianne Williamson

I think this is true. We fear what is unknown to us, and through our day-to-day activities shuffling in and out of the machine, we tend to not face monsters of immeasurable stature... so what is unknown to us is our own power to defeat them.

Make your art. Make your art that is fueled by the rage you feel at injustice. This is the art that will stick around and let the people who are around after you know that someone stood up for what was right.

Be compassionate. A misstep or misguided action is not the same as an action taken knowing that it is wrong.

Stay grounded. We all came from the same place, and we will all go back to the same place.
