The illegitimate creative manifesto

by DRM

I was going through my papers and found three pages of loose notes. They must be recent, but I don’t know why I made them, whether they are my own ideas or notes jotted down from something that I read or saw. They are organized but hurried. They comprise a manifesto of sorts. I just don’t know whether it is mine or someone else’s.

Do you recognize the words as your own?

  1. Peaceful. Share it. Sense of beauty.
  2. JOY —-> uplift. Be in the flow.
  3. Will never be bored, art gives me a sense of explanation and helps other people in a teaching way.
  4. —>Create
    —>Love
    —>Serve
    —> Make a difference
  5. Become an excellent painter. To come adventure. Be free. Freedom!
  6. Make people laugh, and give people a new way of looking at things.
