I’ve had food poisoning last week, and now I have to flu. It’s been tough and I am sorry for being away for a while, but this was a great opportunity for introspection. I started thinking about the way we get attached to our darkness, especially if you’re creative or an artist. There is something mysterious and attractive about darkness; we are drawn by the darkness in ourselves and others.
It seems that everyone I meet fears “others”: what “others” might say, or think, or how they will judge us. I think we’re socialized to have this fear. Not everyone feels it the same way or to the same degree, but most of us experience it.
