Faith Ringgold & art as freedom
Emily me siento muy conectada con tu escrito, me esta pasando lo mismo, tengo varios borradores y no los concluyo, estoy tratando de descifrar el por que no los termino😅
I love this and especially those photos of your daughter buried in gingko leaves!
Faith Ringold taught at Carlow--one of her quilts was hanging in one of the offices or hallways but I’m not sure if it is still there. Fabulous artist!
"And when I lose the rhythm with coming back to my drafts, I lose my confidence that I can ever do it. I lose the thread. And, that’s when 'they' try to stop me from doing it. 'They' are the critical voices in my head. They want me to stop. They say, 'What you write is unoriginal. Basic. Why do you keep doing it anyway?'"
Thank you for articulating this and the journey toward encouragement. I think actually just hearing that someone else feels like this is an encouragement itself. I struggle with losing writing momentum when I haven't solidified my direction. It is like naming the shape of a fog. I need an extraordinarily long runway to get going, and if my concentration breaks, I have to start all over. Again? Anyway, thank you for sharing your writing and process with us.
Love the sweet photos too!
This is just lovely. ❤️
