As some of you know, I've been working on this project since January. I can honestly say, it's been more work than any other project I've done (apart from raising a child, of course). Recruiting artists, sponsors, finding venues, figuring out the details, trying to promote, etc, etc...you understand.
Now that is not to say that I don't enjoy it, but just that-it's a commitment for sure. And to be honest, something that I'm working on for free (is that wrong to admit? Well, I'm all for being honest).
Recently someone asked "Why? Why do this?"
A fair question, to be sure, but for some reason it irritated me as well. Maybe because I find myself asking that question over and over again in my head?
So I've been taking some time to pause and think about the answer.
Well, I guess the answer is-because I want to believe. I want to believe in people who pursue their dream of working for themselves. I want to believe in people who love to make, to create. I want to believe in people who use their talents to create beautiful, lovely things. I want to believe that when you get all these types of people together-that something magical happens.
Now I know that "believing" doesn't pay the bills. I'm aware that this is not something we would be able to keep up year after year without paying ourselves for our work. Hopefully, we can make this happen.
Maybe I'm crazy; that's probably true. I just really feel that life is too short not to take risks. You gotta dive in some times.
I just wanted to say thank you to all of those who've been supporting us over at FELIZ. We feel the love and appreciate it!
What are you working on lately? I'd love to hear.
