The Quotable Caroline, 8-year-old creative soul:
“It’s time to get messy.”
The words of a true artist. Mo told me the same thing a couple decades ago. I mistakenly assumed that at some point we would revert to unmessy.
“Run only if you must,” Dr. Sheehan said. “If running is an imperative that comes from inside you and not from your doctor. Otherwise, heed the inner calling to your own Play. Listen if you can to the person you were and are and can be. Then do what you do best and feel best at. Something you would do for nothing. Something that gives you security and self-acceptance and a feeling of completion; even moments when you are fused with your universe and your Creator. When you find it, build your life around it.”
For me, it’s running. For them, it’s creating colorful chaos.
They make art because they must.
It’s time to get messy.
