‘Creative Up-Rising’ – Day 338/365 -R2100

Don’t be afraid to keep dreaming big creative weird and colourful dreams even if it seems impossible and far away. Those dreams are the fire needed to lift your hot air balloon of dedication and work of that dream and you need a lot of fire to even begin your UpRising (nevermind sustain it). And you do not have to already be way up there to earn the right to hold big visions!

Shooeee I adore these colours, but man they are hard for me to blend. This sky probably has 5 layers on it of trying to get the wishy-washy blend right.⁠

These hot air balloons got me thinking about my own journey into the artist’s life. I think for years I was a basket on the ground (and some days a basket case), just letting the dream and the vision of life expand so fully that the day came where, whether I was ready or not – the balloon now wanted to rise.⁠
.⁠
I’m definitely still one of those baby balloons way at the back hovering an inch off the ground. But man that view once you’re rising – that’s gonna be something to behold!⁠

Folks often told me when I was younger to tone down my wild dreams – or marry rich… and to all of them, I say f*ck-em!⁠
