This will be the last installment of the Weekly Whack… and my last contribution to this web site.
I feel wholly disconnected creatively, intellectually, and spiritually from the rest of the content on this site and, frankly, at times I’ve felt embarrassed to be associated with it. Not trying to judge people, just being honest.
I don’t feel like struggling to make this site or the people that contribute to it more acceptable to me, and I don’t find it worth it to make myself more acceptable to this site or the people who contribute to it. Moving on is the best course. This is business, not personal.
The older I get the more I clarify what it is that I am on this planet to do and who will best assist me in accomplishing my goals. This site or the people on it no longer fulfill that purpose for me. Nothing personal, they are still great friends, but they no longer help me go into the direction I need to go as an artist, teacher, or human.
This is not a whim. This has been a long time coming.
I am the ‘somebody’ the opening quote is referring to. I no longer want to waste any time being the person I was in the past in order to not disappoint friends. I want to fully be who I am now. Nobody knows that person expect me.
Overrated: What people want me to do.
Underrated: What I want to do.
Rated Correctly: What I need to do.
I love you. I am sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.
