‘Wildfire’ – Day 170/365 – NFS

We so often let pride force us into holding onto versions of ourselves that we need to let go of so we can carve real-time for that which ignites our heart.
Money can always be earned. Not time. All you get from this very moment, are the days you have left.
By committing yourself to your journey, new ways arise of staying energised.
To me, that is where the real profit generation in life is. THAT is where you generate compounding joy and real human interest.

If you’ve ever wondered how in the hell I find the steam to keep going, well I don’t know what motivates other artists who’ve done this before me, but for me, it’s the adventure of finding new lessons every time I listen to my gut.
My heart was a mix of the emotions of close friends today, their passions, dedications and burning desires – both beautiful and destructive. .
It pulled me back to this album cover I noticed a few days back of a band I’m loving. Anyway, I was drawn to paint that album cover – Mandolin Orange – Blindfaller.
.
This is it. Well sort of.
.
At first I couldn’t connect with it – it looked like mud. Then somewhere the feel of smoke blazed through their lyrics.

“It should have been different
It could have been easy
But pride has a way of holding too firm to history
And it burns like wildfire”
.
And I just thought to myself – holy shit – there’s such reward in chasing down the fires in your heart.
.
We so often let pride force us into holding onto versions of ourselves that we need to let go of so we can carve real-time for that which ignites our heart. I have and I’m sure it will catch me again.
.
Money can always be earned. Not time. All you get from this very moment, are the days you have left. .
So far I’ve found by committing myself to this, new ways arise of staying energised. .
To me, that is where the real profit generation in life is. THAT is where you generate compounding joy and real human interest.

So, today my gut guided me to this and made creating it feel brand new again.
PS: I just burnt my toast. Oh the irony😝

PPS: Mandolin Orange do a stunning cover of Bob Dylan’s Boots of Spanish Leather – mega emotion.
