Eternity by RobinHedberg

This is so well done in every way, I feel it come out of my computer screen. The way it is posed, how it is such a close-up view, it's ...

So, here I am.
It's 2015.
And, like I said, I am still existing.

I just up and wrote some poetry, which is a thing I hadn't done at all for at least a year. Maybe two.
It's a good thing when I do something creative.
I mean, I really do think, if there ARE actual reasons I was put on this Earth, being an artist is a big one. Another big reason is taking care of cats, and being their family.

In "being an artist" I personally include many artforms. Music is also part of it. I don't dance much anymore. But I'd like to, if I felt better physically.

I say I am a professional, regardless of whether or not I am currently earning money from art, because it is in the truest sense a profession for me.
I profess, I am an artist.
There is no way for me to stop being an artist.
No matter what day job I would have, or whether or not I have a day job at all, I am still an artist.

Even if I go a year where all I make is little doodly sketches, I will still go absolutely out of my damn mind if I don't get the opportunity to at least make those sketches.
If I don't do art, I can't function.

I am an artist, because I am an artist, and can't not be an artist.

I am an ancient being who graduated with a BFA back in the 1990's. I love my cats. I'm an old-school Goth but also like a good laugh.
